Catch me if you can.
Since you believe the public school nutrition program is another aspect of "big government bloat", what has a Republican government done since Reagan to change the program and make it better? Go back to the "No Lunch Left Behind" article, review it, then do your own research and show where there have been sweeping changes within the program under a Republican administration or a Republican Congress where the problem you all see currently have every been addressed to your satisfaction beyond merely terminating same entirely because that would be unacceptable in my view. Not every student who hails from a low-income household have parents who don't work hard everyday trying to provide better for their children. Sometimes, being a waitress or a mechanic is the best they can do. But that doesn't mean these people are lazy, good-for-nothings.
So, you tell us, what have Republicans done to solve this particular problem over the years? (And need I remind you, we've had 3 Republican presidents since 1980 with a cummulative 20 years in the White House compared to just one Democrat totalling 8 years (10 if you count Obama's 2-years).
It's probably non working single mom's who get the most food stamps. Since we have turned into a society where single mothers seem more common then married ones, I wouldn't be surprised.

oh...wait...thats precisely what we are doing...sans the 'seize' part.
When does it end? And how do we CONTINUE to sustain these endless social programs? Who pays for it? Wait...I have an idea...lets start there...All the people that believe this is a good idea...YOU pay for it. Voluntarily...out of your pocket...because its what you believe is the right thing to do.
This legislation is not unlike the unemployment proposals. Costs about the same, continues to extend the 'benefits' (handouts) indefinitely, requires no cuts to pay for thyem which ensures the government will dig the hole deeper and deeper. It grows the government, increases dependency...YEP...thats a recipe for success...
