The 2012 Farm Bill: Three reasons It's More Complicated This Time Around

1. It's an election year.  Yes, 2008 was an election year, too, but both the House and Senate had already passed their versions of the bill by the end of 2007, giving Congress a great deal more time to reconcile their differences before the election.  Even with a presidential veto, there was still time to get it passed.  This time around, the election is less than seven months away, and neither the House nor the Senate have even drafted their own versions of a bill.  There may still be time to wrap things up, but only if Congress can move at warp speed between now and Election Day.
