Regarding H.R.610 — Choices in Education Act of 2017
Although I tend to disagree with a national educational voucher program on a lot of levels, I can at least see the logic of supporters of the system and the potential benefits it could offer.
However, the logic of supporters of the "No Hungry Kids Act" embedded in the new education bill, I cannot see. At least not if they are claiming it is the best interests of the children—our most susceptible citizens.
Reducing the nutritional quality of school lunch and breakfast programs is NOT AT ALL in the best interests of the students.
Though supporters in the House/Senate may argue that kids should have more meal choices, even if unhealthy, or that the affordability of healthier food programs is unsustainable—these are distraction points to incite an argument where there should not be one.
This is about corporate interests and creating feeding habits in our youth that benefit those corporate interests, much like how the tobacco companies employed "subliminal campaigns" through cultural influence and lobbying to develop addictive habits in minors for lifelong profits. It was an effective system for the corporations, allowing a small investment of time and money that led to long-term sustainable tobacco markets (job security) while the compounding costs burdening those aging youths were almost completely transferred to the newly-created-addicts themselves in the form of declining health, medical bills, and death.
Make no mistake: the "No Hungry Kids Act" does not exist to help your kids. It exists to make money off of their long-term struggles. Reread what I've written above, but replace 'tobacco' with 'junk food'.
History operates in cycles. So do corrupt politicians and corporations.
If elected Governor of Michigan, not only will I do everything (with the temporary power you vest in me, if, you, the citizens of Michigan so choose) to ensure our children enjoy the safest, most effective, and healthiest schools, I will also publicly, constantly, and loudly challenge any politicians and any policies that seek to earn dollars off of the backs of our citizens' struggles, ESPECIALLY OUR CHILDREN. PERIOD.
Rep. Steve King must go down in history for continuing to push this awful, immoral bill.
No more "Lives-for-Dollars" policies.
And no more politicians willing to sell out our citizens.
My Very Best,
Ryan Henry Cox
