Rep. King assails school lunch rules while in FD
Calorie limits represent ‘nanny state,’ he says
He said new school lunches, prepared in accordance with the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act championed by first lady Michelle Obama, have come to his attention during recent campaign events. He said parents have approached him and have said things like ''My kids are starving in school. My kids are being rationed on calories.''
Yes, that's exactly what's happening. Children are being starved in school. It's all part of Mrs Obama's nefarious scheme to, um. . . starve children? I guess?
And I would have gotten away with it, too if it weren't for Steve King!
Never mind the fact that kids are getting somewhat healthier food now. The point is, they're starving somehow!
Steve King makes a good point. I mean it's totally not true, but still, Nanny State!
The caloric range for a high school lunch under the new law is 750 to 850 calories, according to Brenda Janssen, the local food service director for Taher Inc., the company that provides meals in the Fort Dodge Community School District.
Janssen said the school lunch entrees remain the same, but the amount of bread and condiments available has been reduced. She added that the amount of fresh fruit and vegetables has been increased.
More fruits AND vegetables?
So, if you're keeping score, Steve King is anti-fruits and vegetables, pro-dog fighting, anti-healthcare, and pro-pink slime.
Also crazy and a goddamned idiot.
