Our federal government continues to grow unconstitutionally larger at breakneck speed. Most alarming is the federal government mandating what our kids eat, and we the people accepting the mandate.
Several weeks back, I received a newsletter from our school’s principal that gave a positive story on the new federal rules that requires schools to serve more vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Not one eyebrow was raised by the administration.
There is no power delegated to the federal government to legislate and fund the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 that requires each student take a serving of fruit or vegetable as part of their lunch or the federal government might not reimburse the cost. This same act is now imposing unconstitutional federal regulations aimed at snack foods and drinks served in the nation's schools which include caps on serving sizes and calorie counts.
Why are state legislators going along with this usurpation?
