Apparently, according to Michelle Obama, it’s the Republicans fault that inner city kids are skipping their lunches at school.
At a fundraiser Monday, Michelle Obama slammed House Republicans who are pushing to grant waivers to schools that are losing money due to her “Let’s Move!” lunch program. The GOP also seeks to ease the law’s requirements when it is re-authorized next year. None of this sits well with the First Lady:
Michelle Obama told donors that Republicans in Congress were dedicated to obstructing not only her husband’s political ambitions but her own efforts to reduce child obesity.
“We all have a right to expect that our hard-earned taxpayer dollars won’t be spent on junk food for our kids,” she said pointing out that parents have a “right” to expect healthy meals in schools.
Michelle pointed out that “her” legislation and “her” national school lunch standards were drafted by “experts” using “sound science,” but that Republicans will continue their efforts to roll back “her” program anyway. And how does she feel about it?
No, no it isn’t the Republicans who are opposing your ridiculous lunch standards. It’s the KIDS!!! They hate what you are forcing them to eat, so they are skipping lunch. How’s that for usurping your “authority” FLOTUS?
