In Iowa Obama Blames Ryan For Blocking Farm Bill

Here we go


President Barack Obama blamed Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan for blocking a farm bill that could help voters in Iowa and elsewhere cope with a crippling drought, as both candidates campaigned in the important Midwestern battleground.

"If you happen to see Congressman Ryan, tell him how important this farm bill is to Iowa and our rural communities," Obama said in excerpts released ahead of a speech Monday in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
