Republicans want to stop 500,000 schoolkids from having a free lunch

❝ The Trump administration recently proposed changes to the food stamp program, but omitted the fact they would make half a million children ineligible for free school meals…

The Department of Agriculture outlined an overhaul of the food stamp program that would reduce the number of Americans that are eligible for those benefits…

❝ Rep. Bobby Scott, D-Va., the chair of the House Committee on Education and Labor, notes the proposal neglects to note the USDA estimates more than 500,000 children would lose their eligibility for free school meals. Currently, families receiving food stamps are automatically entered into a program that provides children with free breakfast and lunch at school.

❝ “…However, when the rule was published in the Federal Register, the Regulatory Impact Analysis (RIA) did not include discussion of the rule’s impact on free school meal eligibility.”

The whole truth and nothing but the truth doesn’t mean diddly-squat to the corrupt Republican Party afraid to challenge their Führer.
