Death Before Obamacare

In other news, the Department of Justice has filed a lawsuit against the state of North Carolina over it’s voter suppression law which is widely seen as the most egregious in the country.

Meanwhile — remember how the healthy school lunch program that was suppose to be a giant failure? Apparently only 0.5 percent (524 out of about 100,000) of schools have dropped out of the program.

According to USDA data released Monday, around a half-percent of schools have dropped out since last year. Ninety of those 524 schools that have dropped out said specifically that they did so because of the new meal-plan requirements. Most of the rest did not give a reason.

Eighty percent of schools say they have already met the requirements, which went into place at the beginning of the 2012 school year.

Many of the schools that dropped out of the program did so because they have wealthy students who don’t need subsidized lunches.

The downside is realizing just how few schools there are you could say that about. The overwhelming majority rely on subsidized lunches because they educate poor children.

By the way, the only thing Fox News may hate more than Obamacare is free lunches for children, or what Stuart Varney refers to as “the goodies.”
