Republicans want poor school kids to starve

By cutting the free or reduced-price school lunch programs. Republicans are not happy with feeding kids in need so they are proposing legislation that will cut the number of kids eligible for this program. They will do this by providing block grants, meaning a set amount of money. When, not if, these schools exceed the limited money for the program then let the children starve.

They are also trying to roll back the nutrition standards for school meals set by the Obama Administration, which did so in the hopes of curtailing the obesity and diabetes epidemic in school children. Again, the Republicans would rather kids can have junk food and drinks in the name of freedom of choice. Yeah, their food and drink choices cause these diseases, which incur enormous healthcare costs that we all pay for in taxes. So much for our freedom in not having to pay for your bad habits.
