My pal from Iowa has amended the quote as a public service

"The farm bill is never an easy process, and it certainly isn’t any easier under current budget conditions," said Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa. “We’re dealing with a broad range of issues that are important to Americans, from conservation to nutrition and it’s important we get a bill done this year. Of course we aren't paying attention to actual conservation organizations, so that makes it easier. The commodity groups are what matter, and we'll give them as much as we can. As for conservation compliance for crop insurance, don't make me laugh." http://www.desmoinesregister.com/article/20120426/NEWS/120426026/U-S-Agriculture-panel-begins-farm-bill-overhaul
