The Democrats have introduced a law that would provide breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a snack to every school child, regardless of the income level of the student. Called the Universal School Meals Program Act of 2023, it would mandate that schools provide the food, but no mention of how these kids will be fed during school holidays, summer, the weekends, or on how late the school cafeteria will be open to provide dinner. Since most schools let out between 2:30 and 3:30, this would most likely require that the school cafeteria stay open until 7 or 8 o’clock at night.

Also not mentioned is how this will be funded. Borrow and spend.

I personally don’t see the primary education evolution from readin’, writin’, rithmetic’ to “feed every student” as a necessarily good idea. While I recognize that there are children who need assistance with nutrition, I’m not sure I agree with the idea that nutritional assistance should be linked permanently and solidly with education. Again, what government provides it can take away, and what government provides is a clear link to mutual support. I feed you, therefore I am your master.

They are trolling and hoping for an overreaction.
People are too busy keeping the lights on and food on the table and we all about Squad Epps always egging on.
National Bolshevism is the withering away of the state by mismanagement, financial wipeout, pandering to professional voters causing animosity, stirring up unwinnable wars.
What comes after that is even worse, good thing I was trained by a 101st Ranger.
O/T-Rump vassal UK will send nuke missiles to the CPUSA 51st state the Kraine.

Funding? Aren’t the money presses and trees still working overtime?

I suspect it’s not meant to pass. Might as well mandate every child get a free kitten or puppy. It’ll fail, and then the Democrats (with their media organ flunkies) will cry about how evil fiscal conservatives want children to go hungry.

Anecdote isn’t data but in Oregon some of the schools do run the cafeteria during vacation periods to keep the free lunch kids fed. They also run some sports and teaching at the same time so the willing get a leg up on academics

a lot of school districts in the DFW area have voted in 4 day weeks, not a fan…I know they will end up running a day care on the off day for all the illegals and in the end my taxes are going up to support this

This isn’t about the student’s nutrition or even expanding school influence. It’s intended to double or triple the amount of food wasted by the .gov run school system and thereby reduce the food supply for the rest of us. Public schools waste an absolutely amazing amount of food. The amount is estimated to be 5 million dollars worth PER DAY, that’s enough to feed every homeless person in the country, well. Given that figure it’s insane to start a program like this.

Get efficient with the current level of service and then we can discuss a doubling of the program. Until then this sort of nonsense is just shoveling good money after bad.

In the private sector the management of any project that pisses away 40% of the budget gets told to hit the bricks. In .gov they propose a big increase in your budget and responsibilities, in other words, a promotion.

We’re doomed.
