Grassley proposed this highly awesome solution to America’s fat baby problem at one of those terrible town hall things people apparently still attend:
Concern was raised about the proposed Department of Labor’s intent to greatly limit child labor on family farms.
“This farm bill will greatly affect our FFA and 4-H programs,” said Grassley. “Kids won’t be able to help on farms not owned by their parents.
“It’s interesting that this child labor bill goes against Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity initiative,” said Grassley. “How can kids be active if they are limited by this law?”
Yeah, Michelle Obama! There is literally no other way for children to be active, if not at the business end of a spike harrow. And why should only very, very urban children be allowed to maintain our nation’s crumbling infrastructure? Janitorialism for some, draft animalhood for the rest! [Think Progress]
