Republicans are trying to balance the budget through spending cuts i.e. “smaller government”. Well – this is what their version of smaller government looks like…instead of raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans – they want to cut vital programs for KIDS…school lunch programs etc. The problem with kids nowadays is that they’re just too lazy to pay their own way – they’re the welfare queens of society…always mooching off of their parents. <sarcasm/>.
When I was a kid – there were times in my life that I was on the free lunch program. My mom didn’t make enough money and I’m lucky that I was able to eat. Children need food in order to be good students…and this doesn’t seem like something that I would characterize as “government waste” but the GOP does. All of this despite the fact what economists are saying – RAISE TAXES ON THE RICH and you’ll be able to balance the vast majority of the budget (source).
