A brief summary: Rep.

Corrine Brown

took to the well of the House Thursday to criticize Republicans for taking food stamps out of the farm bill.

“Shame!” she said, pointing to the GOP members.

A colleague took offense, asking that her words be “taken down” — that is, removed from the record. It’s a rare and fairly aggressive move.

Chairing the session? Our own Rep.

Kevin Yoder

, KS-03.


Emanuel Cleaver

, MO-05, also took part.
