Farmers Left Out to Dry by Congress
A catastrophic drought has the federal government pandering for a means to designate over half of the nation's counties as disaster areas. Congress has yet to act and prove itself capable of making anything happen in the wake of the nation's historic drought disaster. Large or small, farmers just sit waiting for some type of relief as the cost of feeding their animals has grown too much to make a profit. Now, the Senate has closed down for the rest of August as the nation continues to dry up.
