Why did Seattle’s “Liberal Congressman for Life” vote against fixing food aid?

Many experts say that the current system of how the U.S. government does food aid is plenty corrupted – at least if you assume the goal is to feed the poor and hungry. The current system requires that we buy the food from American farmers and ship it on American-flagged vessels. No other country does food aid this way, because it is so inefficient and, well, blatantly self-serving.
