First Lady (?) Michelle Obama is upset because the Congress doesn’t like her school lunch guidelines any better than the kids who are forced to eat it.
Although a great many people have cried tyranny for quite some time, it’s only now that those tasked with representing the people are doing their jobs. Despite the fact almost every child has suffered at the hands of Michelle’s “healthy” school lunches, she has remained adamant that it should continue.
Please note that her kids’ school doesn’t follow the White House guidelines. Neither does the White House kitchen.
Really, would you eat this for lunch. Every day.
Unfortunately for her, this time things are different, as a bill to shut down the terrible lunches for good has been set forth with bipartisan participation. According to Western Journalism:
The bill, introduced by Senate Agriculture Chairman Pat Roberts, R-Kan., and the committee’s top Democrat, Sen. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan, moves to end the rules and also seeks to address the massive rise in food waste that has been seen since the rules were implemented. The bill has the support of the School Nutrition Association (SNA) which represents 55,000 school food service employees across the country.
SNA President Jean Ronnei went on to say, “In the absence of increased funding, this agreement eases operational challenges and provides school meal programs critical flexibility to help them plan healthy school meals that appeal to students.”
In other words, the current school lunches are disgusting and deserve to end up in the trash. The same could be said of almost ever piece of legislation that has spawned from the Obamas. If the bill passes, it would give the Department of Agriculture 90 days to create new sodium and whole grain policies.
The good news is…Senator Ted Cruz said at his speech in Greenville, SC the other day, when Heidi’s first lady, French fries are comin’ back!
