Congress can't even agree on feeding our kids

February 07, 2011

Our Congress passed a law in 2010 called "Healthy, Hungry Kids Act." This act was to pay for food for children who were not receiving sufficient nutrition to be healthy. It was so popular and apparently worthy that it passed in the Senate by a unanimous vote. Yet in the House of Representatives, 157 members voted against it. Obviously some representatives would vote against the best of legislation to avoid cooperating with the other party. This is a major sign of the failure of our Congress.
