The 50 Democrats voting with Republicans today is more than double the 24 Democrats who voted for the farm bill that failed in the House in June.

The vote came after several Democrats angrily criticized the legislation for ignoring the needs of hungry people in America. The food stamp program, formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), made up about 80 percent of the original House farm bill that the House rejected in June.

"If we have no further business in this august body this week, we should go home," she said. "I move that the House do now adjourn."

In light of the vote, the House was expected to debate and vote on the rule for the bill, which allows just an hour of debate and no amendments. After that, a debate and final vote should happen by the early afternoon.
