WASHINGTON — The Senate has scuttled a $286 billion farm bill that would have reestablished some federal subsidies for textile mills that use domestic and imported cotton.
Democrats on Friday failed to get the 60 votes required to cut off debate on the legislation and advance it for final consideration and passage. The cloture vote was 55-42. The House passed the bill in July.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
