    Republicans say the nutrition bill is too costly and an example of government overreach.

    "It's not about making our children healthy and active," said Rep. John Kline, R-Minn. "We all want to see our children healthy and active. This is about spending and the role of government and the size of government — a debate about whether we're listening to our constituents or not."

    Republicans block legislation to feed more children, improve school lunches | Markets | Market News | Canadian Business Online

    Giving millionaires and billionaires 700 billion dollars is "good" for the economy, but feeding children in school at about 0.4% of that amount will bankrupt us.

    Remember Republican Andre Bauer who said "if you feed the poor, they'll breed"?

    Hey America, you voted them into office. Happy Holidays.

    Actually its the other way round. They breed and we feed them.

    Planned Parenthood was founded by a handful of liberals who wanted to stanch the explosive growth of minorities.

    They already have free lunch, MO wants after school meals (dinner)

    So tell me where is all of the food stamp money going if its not to feed them lunch and dinner?

    that article is shit. sorry but there it is, it carefully omits or doesn't mention the guts of the "program".

    and we need to spend another 4.5 BILLION on this...NOW???

    I thought we were trying to not spend money? This is one very good reason why the House turned over.

    see this is how it starts; next budget, it will get a bump up to maybe 5 B...next year 5.5, and on and on and on....benchmarks? parsing of worth via empirical data? nope, you get the Deans who'll tell anyone who will listen, you're starvin da chillen...when you try to reign it in.

    Two entirely different problems Syrenn. Yes logic would assume that those who collect foodstamps would use that to provide meals for their children. Unfortunateloy many are uneducated boobs who don't. That isn't the child's fault, AND studies have shown that hungry student under perform. Feed the kids, go after the food stamp abusers.

    The problems are intertwined.

    So again. It is not "feed the poor and they will breed". The problem is they will breed and we will feed them. The issue at hand is that they want MORE. MO wants to expand and change what is already in place.

    Expanding the program to include a "late meal" (dinner) will leave the abusers of the system more room to abuse the system on a grander scale. There would be no reason to buy food or provide for dinner.
