    True that.

    and yet, you would limit what people can buy with foodstamps?

    No, what the school can provide, likely healthy food. How terrible. But you can feed them whatever you want.

    Gotta agree with dan, here. If the Democrats are opposed to background checks for child care workers, THEY killed the bill and are idiots.

    they are not opposed, i want to see what's in the bill. and anyway, what does the gop amendment have to do with school lunches? why not have it ba a standalone? clearly, it's a derailing tactic.

    Perhaps, but I'm still not clear as to why it would be atached to this bill.

    Also, if this is all republicans need to pass the bill, then they are not really objecting to the bill, right?

    when have I ever said that? people on FOOD stamps should be able to buy whatever FOOD they want with them. FWIW, cigarettes and beer are not food. If they are stupid enough to buy junk food and turn their kids into little fat bastards, that's their problem.

    How does that reduce their dependency issues?
