Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is backtracking on his plan to cut energy and food subsidies, according to an Iranian state radio report. In rare criticism, Parliament had blasted the plan to cut the subsidies in a country that already is dealing with fuel rationing and skyrocketing prices. In comments broadcast Tuesday, Ahmadinejad said: "We will take back the bill."
