    feed the kids

    except---during 2010's RECOVERY SUMMER obama cut FOOD STAMPS, in times like these, to offer more STIMULUS (a word he no long allows himself to use) for teachers

    except---the nyt reported the BAILOUT money was NOT being used for HIRING, as intended, was instead targeted towards shoring up those perversely overpromised and underfunded PENSIONS for sally schoolmarm and professor pete

    Food Stamps Slashed to Pay for Teacher Jobs Bill - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/18/bu...8teachers.html

    as a california public schoolteacher, member of strs, state teacher retirement system, i can testify to the number of my colleagues who retire in their young 60's, with some $3500 a month supposedly guaranteed them for the rest of their leisure loving lives

    upshot---this administration has no idea what it's doing

    when it comes to ECONOMICS, don't look to the former editor of harvard law turned southside chicago community organizer, nor his teleprompter

    and the PROS he brought in to guide his eloquence---orszag, romer, summers---have all QUIT

    cut food stamps to shore up the plum but popping pensions on a tuesday

    feed the kids wednesday

    sorry

    Id give them more credit if they actually believed enough in the program to fund it out of their own pockets. Someone writes a newspaper article about a bill none of them knew anything about and suddenly its a fall out of the tree by damn gotta have "for the chiiiildren" important program...

    sorry
    thanks for the link:

    Democrats convinced two Republicans in the Senate to support the measure in part by ensuring it would not add to the deficit. That was in part accomplished by cutting food stamp payments beginning in 2014 by $12 billion. The cut would bring funding for the food stamp program, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, back to pre-stimulus levels ahead of schedule.


    Liberal Democrats say they are committed to restoring the funding, the Hill reports.


    "This is a bitter pill to swallow," Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) reportedly said in a statement, noting a spike in participation in the last year. She added, however, that states "desperately need" the $26 billion aid package to save jobs and avoid cuts to essential services.


    "As you can imagine, for me personally, it's like 'Sophie's Choice,' " she added.

    you're welcome

    the progressive caucus has no pull to accomplish anything now or in the near foreseeable

    Senate blocks Obama's tax plan - Washington Times

    meanwhile, food stamps were cut to underwrite just a bit more of those fat teacher pensions

    it's all about priorities

    payback, that is

    party on

    Where have you been living? We already have strict regulations regarding all these things - and both sides have their own focus - everything from regulating the content of our foods to people not being allowed to marry.

    If that's not strictly regulated living then I don't know what is - been to an airport lately?

    Why? Because we 'live in the greatest country on earth' and in this fabulous great #1 country we can't let people starve and be gay - everyone has to eat and be straight or else they'll get the hose, again.
    (sarcastic - but it's also true. Our nationalism mindset that came from pride and patriotism is now the backbone behind everything)

    If government didn't take it upon their selves to be such heavy regulators - then it wouldn't directly affect me and I wouldn't give a **** what people ate or smoked. Sadly - for the last century - that's just not how we've been.

    "Laissez-faire" is very much so *not us*

    No, we are talking about feeding the children three times a day rather than two and adding even more than the 31 million kids that already get free meals.

    A large percentage of school kids already qualify for free or reduced fee meals:

    1. Any kid from a family that receives food stamps, including any state program.
    2. Foster children.
    3. Homeless children.
    4. Migrant children. Yes, even illegal immigrants.
    5. Runaway children.
    6. All kids in Head Start or Even Start.
    7. Kid in a family of four with an income under $41,000./year.

    But, this bill does one very important thing that will undoubtedly save America's children from obesity. It bans bake sales on school property. Yes folks, the time honored method used by bands and other school groups to make money for trips, uniforms, and other needed items will be banned under this bill.

    America's children are saved.
