Finally, someone within the Republican party took the blinders off and saw things for what they truly are. My hat goes off to you, jamesrage.
(Sorry...I know I said I'd hold off on my response, but once I notied that a Conservative made the connection, there really was no reason to delay.)

Gawd I hope the Dems don't try some shenanigans to pass it.
Republicans block child nutrition bill - wtop.com
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md. said the House would hold separate votes on Thursday on the amendment and the bill.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., the top Republican on the House Education and Labor Committee. "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."
Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.
The original bill was just fine. Who added the additional $4.6M to it and why? The original expenditures were being funded under the SNAP program and would NOT have cost the tax payers another cent. So, why the amendment when it was unanimously approved by the Senate last August? The GOP didn't think the government was over-reaching with this piece of legislation then? So, what's changed between August and December, 2010?

If the bill was fine w/o the amendment, it should have been fine in it's original form "AS-IS" to send to the President for signature.
