According to U.S. House Representative Marilyn Musgrave's (CO-4) [url=http://musgrave.house.gov/News/DocumentSingle.aspx?DocumentID=91549]website[/url], she plans to [i]lead the fight[/i] to override President Bush's veto of the the recent Farm Bill. The bill passed, but there appears to be a technical issue that will require a new vote by both the House and the Senate, then another override by both Chambers.
Rep. Musgrave champions the provisions for food stamps and food banks.

[quote]All it takes is one gaffe to taint a Republican for life. The political establishment never let Dan Quayle live down his fateful misspelling of â€œpotatoe.â€ The New York Times distorted and misreported the first President Bushâ€™s questions about new scanner technology at a grocersâ€™ convention to brand him permanently as out of touch.

[quote]This is a standard refrain of our political discourse, a boilerplate phrase over which we ordinarily have no reason to pause. But (as I describe in Beyond Citizenship) the â€œrights and obligations of citizenshipâ€ have been whittled down to a very small quantity. That reflects and reinforces the diminished meaning of citizenship.[/quote]
