Rethugs block school lunches
They want tax cuts, goddamit!


House Republicans have temporarily blocked legislation to feed school meals to thousands more
hungry children. Republicans used a procedural maneuver Wednesday to try to amend the $4.5 billion bill,
which would give more needy children the opportunity to eat free lunches at school and make those lunches
healthier. Michelle Obama has lobbied for the bill as part of her "Let's Move" campaign to combat childhood obesity.

House Democrats said the GOP amendment, which would have required background checks for child care workers,
was an effort to kill the bill and delayed a final vote on the legislation rather than vote on the amendment.

Because the nutrition bill is identical to legislation passed by the Senate in August, passage would send it to
the White House for Obama's signature. If the bill were amended, it would be sent back to the Senate with
little time left in the legislative session.

Republicans say the nutrition bill is too costly and an example of government overreach.

"Fuck them damn kids, wher4e's my tax cut?" said Rep. John Kline, R-Minn., the top Republican asshole
on the House Education and Labor Committee. "We all want to see our children healthy and active - but I'm
not risking my tax cut so some curtain climbers can avoid working for a living."

Alaska's Publicity Whore has also taken a swipe at the first lady's campaign, bringing cookies to a speech
at a Pennsylvania school last month and calling the campaign a "school cookie ban debate" and "nanny state
run amok" on her Twitter feed.

Things are so crazy now, when Democrats come out for better nutrition for kids, that nutty
Publicity Whore shows up with cake and ice cream, teaching the kids that greed is good and
there's no penalty to pay for over-indulgence.

Think how different America would be today if the Democrats were fighters
and the GOP were the ones wetting their pants in fear every day.
