In a statement to Politico, Fincher said he had voted to eliminate the direct payments he and his wife had received.
“Both the House and the Senate passed bills that end direct payments, and as we move forward, I hope we can work out the rest of the issues to implement the necessary reforms,” he said.
Lucas is chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, and he guided a farm bill through the panel that followed the tradition of combining farm and nutrition programs.
However, the House defeated that bill in June, as most Democrats complained that it cut too much from food stamps and some Republicans objected that it didn't cut enough.
House Republican leaders then insisted that the farm portion of the bill be considered separately, and the House approved that legislation two weeks ago. Lucas has said that his committee will work to craft a separate food stamp bill that could gain House approval. The Senate-passed farm bill includes farm and nutrition programs.
Miller's report also includes the estimated wealth of the 14 Republicans based on the annual financial disclosure reports filed by members of Congress; the report contrasts the wealth of the members with the number of people on food stamps in their districts.
Using an opensecrets.org summary of Lucas' reported assets and liabilities for 2011, the report estimates Lucas' net worth between $265,000 and $1 million. And it says 248 people in Roger Mills County receive food stamps, about 6 percent of the county population.
However, according to a report from the Oklahoma Department of Human Services, food stamp participants in Roger Mills County reached 342 people in March of this year.
