    That's not quite true. Many conservatives in business for example take many a tax dollar and do very little with them. And many call themselves conservative do take advantage of many government programs. This is just a fact.

    The $4.5 billion bill would expand free school meals for the low-income students and give the government the power to make them healthier. The government will decide what kinds of foods may be sold in vending machines, lunch lines and fundraisers during school hours.
    Supporters say the law is needed to stem rising health care costs because of growing childhood obesity and also to feed more hungry children in tough economic times. Some Republicans contend the measure is too expensive and an example of government overreach.

    I guess the Republicans failed to stop it.
    No more fundraising from bake sales. Is big government going to also pay for things that the bakesales usually pay for? Or should they switch to apple and spinach sales?

    Yes because having kids eat **** every day is a GOOD idea?
    You Conserva-haters are always hating if its not YOUR party passing the legislation. Bunch o' whiners and finger-pointers you are. At LEAST some Republicans can see the logic feeding our kids health food.

    And if the kids dont like it they can ****ing STARVE! Damn brats

    And yes, that is another thread if we're to speak about those specifics.

    There were some programs in the 60's. I remember getting beans and free cheese. Actually developed a taste for both. And even with food stamps and welfare, I often ate better at school. My mother was no slacker. She worked even then, and every day until the day she died, calling in sick to work only to go to the hosptial and die. So, we didn't create a slacker by helping her. Too often we stereotype and ignore the real people who are actually helped. Sure, we can find people who abuse anything and everything. but we do help real people with many of these programs.
    What I mean by "slackers" is people who are able but unwilling to work, earn a living, etc. The truly unable needy should be at the head of the line, the rest should stay home. One of my neighbors gave me some of the free commodities they went for.
    Driving a brand new Toyota Avalon, had high dollar motor home in the back yard, a nice paid for home, and looking for free food. They actually qualified, as their income was low. They were taking food away from the truly needy.

    I for one, am sick and tired of having to step over all the bodies of those starved to death children that litter the inner cities in America. It makes it difficult for me to enjoy my morning latte'... Then there's the stench... don't get me started.

    BINGO!!!! Give the man a prize! That is correct sir. I just cant believe the UTTER ignorance of many conservatives. I have found in my life that conservatives get some Socialstic gov't assistance than the Demo-rats do!!!!
    BUT....... because of the BS conservative propaganda of lies and half-truths that is constantly bombarding them they actually THINK they are in some way better than Democrats! (which then in turn makes them worse)

    Conservatives WAKE UP! Youre worse at taking and spending money than anyone else!

    As i said, there will always be some who do that at every income level. Taking advantage of a program of any kind, at any level is all too common. But we don't throw out the baby with the bath water.

    Even if this was in context and reflected what she is actually saying, this would be her opinion and not the left. Keep in mind that people see things differently no matter which way the lean.

    Listen to the entire thing. She does call this the responsibility of parents. and then talks about how much they get from school meals, a fact, and does not advocate taking that responsibility away.
