Missouri GOP Senate Candidate Akin Wants to Take School Lunches Away From Children
Rep. Todd Akin is running for the US Senate in Missouri, and apparently believes it’s a winning strategy to advocate abolishing school lunches.
U.S. Rep. Todd Akin, the Republican candidate, said he opposes federal spending for the National School Lunch Program, which provides cash and surplus food for nearly 650,000 school lunches in Missouri each day.
“Is it something the federal government should do?” Akin said. “I answer it no. … I think the federal government should be out of the education business.”
