Obama Diverted Money From Food Stamp Program To Fund Michelle’s “Let’s Move” Program
Quote:As you dig into your Butterball with all the trimmings this Thanksgiving, remember that millions of famished schoolkids around America may be forced to forgo classic turkey — and chow down instead on vegan black-bean patties and organic locavore quinoa salad.

On Nov. 1, sizable cuts were gouged into the federal food-stamp program (or, as it’s now called, SNAP, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), which feeds 47.6 million people, or nearly one in six Americans. In the city, 1.9 million folks get the bulk of their Jell-O and Campbell’s Soup from stamps.

But news has spread among the poor, like leafy green vegetables, that it wasn’t heartless Republicans who triggered the cuts.

Rather, some of the food-stamp cash was snatched to pay for Michelle Obama’s pet project, Let’s Move. What?

It’s come to this. Some 76 million meals a year will vanish from this city — poof! — partly because the president diverted money from SNAP to the first lady’s signature program, part of her Let’s Move anti-obesity initiative — the bean-sprout-heavy, $4.5 billion Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act.
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
Of course the "cuts" are nothing more than returning to normal levels of funding much like the rax increases would have been nothing more than letting the tax cuts expire but let's not allow facts to get in the way..
I have a FB friend constantly harping on Republicans for wanting to reduce welfare....I would repost this except I hate FB drama....
Error 396: Signature cannot be found.
My question is as Michelle Obama is not an elected official how is she allowed or the president allowed to appropriate any funds to her projects at all? This should have been the case with Laura, Hillary, going back too. With every successive regime the nepotism we allow "first ladies" only gets worse and will continue to do so as long as it is allowed to continue. I say if the first lady wants to create a project, fine so be it, however, it ought to only happen via funds they raise for such projects on their own through donations with no federal funds at all. This should also be the case with travel costs associated with such projects.
