Amendment to Defund NAIS Fails

The amendment offered by Rep. Ron Paul of Texas to defund the NAIS scheme has failed. Only 34 members of the House voted for it - you can see the complete roll call here. In the Indiana delegation it appears that only Dan Burton and John Hostettler supported it: the rest, including such politically diverse personalities as Steve Buyer, Julia Carson and Mike Pence, voted to put the small farmer out of business.

Read the roll call. Remember in November.
