The Tea House of the August Moonbats is at it again:
And in a surprising twist, the bill language specifies that only rural areas are to benefit in the future from funding requested by the administration this year to continue a modest summer demonstration program to help children from low-income households — both urban and rural — during those months when school meals are not available.
Urban areas — defined as densely developed residential, commercial and other nonresidential areas — now account for 80.7 percent of the U.S. population, up from 79.0 percent in 2000. Although the rural population — the population in any areas outside of those classified as “urban” — grew by a modest amount from 2000 to 2010, it continued to decline as a percentage of the national population.
Apparently it’s not enough that every single fucking piece of legislation genuflects towards the 19% of America that lives in the sticks, where it’s more expensive to provide roads, mail, telecom and other government subsidized services. Now we’re taking food from kids’ mouths.
