Sleepy Joe once said, “Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white
But unless schools acquiesce to the Biden Administration's transgender policies, innocent kids will bear the burden and their school lunch money will be subsequently withheld.
Sen. Roger Marshall
(R-KS) called on his colleagues to support a resolution to prevent the federal government from withholding lunch money funding from schools that don’t allow children to use the bathroom of the opposite sex.
Congressional Review Act (CRA) “would’ve struck down a Biden Administration Policy Memorandum on the federal school lunch program that’s been weaponized to force schools to adhere to the Democrats’ radical transgender agenda,'' according to Marshall's
The CRA failed in the Senate 47-50.
No matter what the political disagreement is, threats should never come at the expense of children. Kids should never have to suffer because “adults” can’t agree on things.
“Don’t be fooled here, the Biden Administration is the only player in this policy fight that is taking away lunches from children. There is real-world evidence that USDA’s policy has already taken away school lunch funding from low-income children. Weaponizing school lunch money in pursuit of their radical agenda and putting students in the crosshairs is unconscionable, and we will not stand for it,” Senator Marshall said.
This means that schools receiving funds from the USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service must abide by policies that prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
In other words, unless we allow Bob to go into the locker room with Sally, no one gets to eat. I guess you really can’t have your cake and eat it too.
This also means that kids who identify as LGBT will have their lunch money withheld as well.
“The Biden Administration has no authority to force schools to allow biological boys access to girls’ bathrooms and locker rooms or to allow boys to compete in girls’ sports. My CRA overturns Joe Biden’s egregious rule and takes politics out of the lunch line.”
In July 2022, a Christian academy in Florida filed a suit over threats it would be losing lunch funding for low-income students unless it complied with the policy.
“This outrageous policy by the Biden Administration would deny American children food unless parents and schools ram radical gender ideology down children’s throats. No girl at school should feel threatened because it’s Joe Biden’s policy that a boy can use a girl’s restroom at school,” Senator Cruz said. “No girl playing girls’ sports should have to compete against someone who has a physical, biological advantage. This Biden Administration rule is the opposite of what Title IX is all about, and I hope Congress puts an end to it.”
Just one year after the first lawsuit was filed, a Church and its preschool in Southern Calif. also had to sue the USDA and California after they were removed from participation in the school lunch program because they refused to acquiesce to the administration’s interpretation of “gender identity.”
Just think about it, the federal government has instituted a policy that withholds funds for a child's lunch. You would think that the ONE thing that the government wouldn't politicize would be school lunch, but nope. That’s not even safe.
On top of all that, the policy arguably abandons religious exemptions in federal law.
Let’s just go ahead and starve underprivileged children for political gain. That makes sense, right?
All that said, “poor kids are just as hungry as white kids.”
