CO House Republicans' Brilliant Plan to Reduce Childhood Obesity

  • 6 Comments
  • by: catpuzzle

Apparently one of the ‘concerns’ House Republicans have with the school breakfast program is that it might be fostering the scourge of childhood obesity.

It’s irrefutable logic, and Republicans’ solution to the issue is pretty brilliant: if you don’t feed poor kids, they probably won’t get fat.

Anyway, go over to that blog that the big Denver newspaper runs to read what Tim Hoover has written about it. A small taste…


Sen. Kent Lambert, one of the Republicans on the Joint Budget Committee who voted against supplemental funding for a school breakfast subsidy for poor children, has had concerns about such programs in the past.

In 2009, Lambert, R-Colorado Springs, submitted questions to the Colorado Department of Education about its overall approach on nutrition.

“Is the Department looking at reducing childhood obesity, especially among the poor? What are they doing to decrease it?” Lambert asked.

  1. Additionally, we shouldn’t be offering free meals to children until each and every one of them has paid off the $44,900 share of the national debt they’ve racked up.

    Irresponsible, fat, free-loading, snot-nosed little buggers, every last one of them.
