School Lunch Fraud

Most Republicans are so obsessed with voter fraud, they’re missing some of America’s other serious problems.  Rampant voter fraud is of course a crucial issue.  The very thought of immigrants, homosexuals, Negroes and poor people actually voting — [gasp] — it’s enough to make decent Americans long for the 1950s.

But now another type of fraud has been brought to America’s attention:  school lunch fraud.

It’s bad enough millions of low-income nobodies get to foist their children on our public schools where they eat for free.  Now, Rep. Dennis Rehberg (R-All Hat No Cattle) has revealed that some of these children aren’t quite low-income enough to qualify for those free lunches they’re getting.  Parasites!

Somebody somewhere is getting Something For Nothing!  And that’s just plain Un-American!

This isn’t the first time Dennis Rehberg has warned The American People about fraud and waste.  Last April, he warned us about another waste of taxpayers’ money:  Pell Grants.  He fumed:

“Why should they go to school?  I never did.”

A defining feature of today's radical conservatives is that they would gladly watch as 99 people starve if that's what it would take to keep one undeserving person from getting a free meal.

That's compassionate conservatism, you know. It keeps the one freeloader from becoming a cheat.

SW: That's their exact "reasoning." The worst thing possible would be for somebody to get something for free (unless it's a large corporation getting tax subsidies).

Remember Conservatives never liked the school lunch program in the first place

Erik: Damn right, tell those whiny school kids to pull themselves up by their bootstraps.

Tell those kids to have a dab of ketchup and keep quiet. They need the vegetables.
