    tail chasing?

    if you choose not to feed them what the free lunch provides it defeats the purpose of spending money on the free lunch program.

    Re: Republicans block child nutrition bill

    let's deny food to hungry kids, eliminate unemployment compensation during a time when jobs are unavailable, object to health care for those without the means to pay, all in the name of fiscal responsibility ... but please, please do not end the tax break for billionaire$
    for that we can borrow from the chinese to incur additional debt for the next generation to inherit

    Also, if this is all republicans need to pass the bill, then they are not really objecting to the bill, right?
    Well, inconsistent things get attached to bills all the time. In this case, I see no reason why adding something like this would put Democrats off. It's like saying, "let's feed our children AND keep them safe". Sounds like win-win.

    Kind of silly isn't it. I've never understood why "welfare moms" make people more angery than corrporate welfare, or why unemployment benefits are worse than bailing out banks or walstreet, and why we tax tax the rich more, but workers to have less. It all stumps me a bit.

    Agreed, but added to the complaints they raised, wouldn't tehy still have those complaints even if democrats accepted the addition? Wouldn't it still be bigger government?

    wait a minute. i thought child obesity was the next plague across america?

    all the fat kids i see getting off the school busses are hungry?

    this is parisan posturing. they might as well have named it the "we love grandmother and America" bill did you hear that republicans hate grandma?!?

    eliminate unemployment compensation
    yup; that's how you get people back to work. you're welcome.

    during a time when jobs are unavailable
    jobs are available. the problem is Americans are taught to assume we are owed positions like the one we used to have, and so long as the Government is paying us not to, we see no reason to take a lower-paying one.

    object to health care for those without the means to pay
    that's called Medicare. and actually conservatives are full of ways to reduce the cost of health insurance to make it more widely accessible. HSA's, for example.


    all in the name of fiscal responsibility ... but please, please do not end the tax break for billionaire$ for that we can borrow from the chinese to incur additional debt for the next generation to inherit
    right. when you start accepting that we have to cut back on entitlements (which is the reality no matter how you slice it), then i'll start taking the claim that you care about the debt seriously.
