House Republicans Try to Kill Bill to Feed Hungry Schoolchildren
While Insisting on Tax Breaks for the Rich
DEC 3, 2010 or MERRY CHRISTMAS POOR KIDS from 153 Republicans who voted against it!
The House of REPS passed (but barely) the 'Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.” It provides $4.5B to badly underfunded child nutrition programs. And unsurprisingly, 153 Republicans voted against it — after repeatedly trying to kill it. Are Republicans nothing but obstruction-minded when it comes to anything associated with the poor, hungry, jobless, homeless and/or the Obama administration, as many Democrats have charged over the past two years? It certainly is beginning to look that way, especially after a bill that helps provide for a school lunch program for the nation’s schoolchildren was blocked by Republicans Thursday. The Michelle Obama-supported legislation, the 'Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010? (S.3307), even passed the Republican hurdle of being paid for within the measure, according to OpenCongress.org. It eventually passed, but not without a lot of legislative wrangling and the Republicans mounting a last-minute vote to stop it. And why was the GOP so eager to let America’s children go hungry?
I'm healthy. I'm skinny is all,and
near blind since birth. I get bread for
breakfast and lunch. As did my mom
during the pregnancy that produced me.
But FOOD STAMPS allow ME to get peanut
butter on it at night! I'm fine, I guess.
'It’s not about making our children healthy and active,” SCROOGE Rep. John Kline (R) of Minnesota told Associated Press. '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.' Yet John Kline, like John Boehner (who also voted for children to go hungry), wants to give tax cuts to rich people — which will cost the government about 20,000 times more than the bill to feed kids a lunch, just a healthy lunch!
You’d think there’d be political hay to be made out of THE SCANDAL of these jerks taking food out of hungry kids’ mouths so that millionaires can buy a few more baubles, wouldn’t you? WHY DO PEOPLE STAY SO APATHETIC?
OR ARE YOU? Time to start your own COMMUNITY POTLUCK DINNER/ ACTIVISM CLUB --a fun, ONCE A MONTH MEETING, a celebration bringing LOTS NEW FRIENDS from THE FINEST FOLKS ON YOUR BLOCK!
