U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Taylorville)When things go bad, U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Taylorville) finds President Obama's administration to be easy to blame.  “I would have thought that, during the government shutdown, they would have been able to fix the so-called glitches” in the Affordable Health Care web site, “but they didn't,” Davis continues, “because the plan itself, the way it’s been set up, the mismanagement of this web site, and the expensive, exponential cost of $292 million, it just shows that this isn’t ready for prime time.”

As for the coming expiration of the current food stamp program, which, Davis notes, was part of the 2009 stimulus, “The goal at the time was to get people off of SNAP and to move them into jobs.  Because of the failed economic policies of this administration, this is going to expire when millions are still needing SNAP benefits,” Davis says. “What I’m hoping to do, as a member of the Farm Bill conference committee, we’re going to put some good policies in place, to ensure that those who need SNAP benefits, those who need food stamps, are going to be the ones who actually get them.”
