Michelle Obama Has Been Telling Us What To Eat For Years. This Bill Would Turn The Tables

There is no question that Michelle Obama wants to control what Americans – especially children – are allowed to eat. In fact, as part of her “Let’s Move” campaign, she has made such nutrition regulations a central theme.

In accordance with her recommendations, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has issued restrictions on the number of calories and types of foods public schools are allowed to serve. The first lady herself, however, is noticeably unconstrained by the strict guidelines she wants to place on others. For example, the fatty meal served at a White House state dinner this week was estimated to contain 2,500 calories, or twice as much as an average public school’s breakfast and lunch combined.

USDA mandates limit elementary school students to a total of 1,150 calories for the two meals. The largest serving allowed under the regulation is high school lunch, which can contain a whopping 850 calories.

To combat this apparent hypocrisy, one innovative U.S. representative has sponsored a bill that would hold the Obamas to the same standards by which everyone else is expected to abide.

“Back home, our school districts and students are frustrated and feel like their government is not listening,” Illinois Republican Rep. Rodney Davis said. His bill would do exactly what leftists consistently claim is their supreme mission: level the playing field.

The legislation would require any White House functions to stick to the same caloric restrictions imposed upon students. Of course, his intention is likely not to see the proposal actually become a law; rather, he is making a point that resonates with millions of Americans.

Michelle Obama has made limiting nutritional choice a very prominent aspect of her public persona. Davis’ bill would show her that, if a government-mandated meal plan is truly best for the public at large, it should be equally beneficial for her family and illustrious guests.

The USDA guidelines by which schools must operate not only limit calories; restrictions also apply to salt intake and saturated fats.

  1. her ass is looking mighty big, she needs to cut down on calories too!

  2. Thomas C Neith says:

    What's good for the goose is good for the gander and they are no different then anyone else and should be held to a higher standard.

  3. The problem with having that bill passed (if it isn't vetoed) is the same problem with any law passed while Obama is in office. He and his family will simply ignore it. Because, while Democrats claim they want to level the playing field, they don't want to be on it when it happens. This applies to Obama as is evident by his actions. I think we need another Magna Carte incident, wherein the king is forced to sign a document that limits his power. Only this time, Obama would be forced to sign a document that not only limits his power (back to how it was originally intended to be) but also repeals EVERYTHING he forced on the people. After that, give him the boot, what ever that happens to entail.

  5. Edwardkoziol says:

    I've said it before who the hell voted her into the political arena.She should worry about Buckwheat & Sapphire, most of all she should get her fat ass to lose weight.This black bitch is a blight on society.

  6. MuslimLuvChrist says:

    Sacrebleu! At 2,500 calories, the state dinner menu is triple Michelle’s ‘healthy’ lunch. So what did she do? She had 2 plates!

  7. TooMuchGovernment says:

    The government is supposed to represent the people. Obamacare was shoved down our throats (should have been voted on), the Obamas ignore the laws, spend taxpayer money like crazy and totally ignore what's best for the country. I wonder how many people honestly think they are better off now than pre-Obama!
