Congress Says Pizza is a Vegetable

The ghost of Ronald "Ketchup is a Vegetable" Reagan lives in today's GOP.--SS

Congress Says Pizza is a Vegetable:

House Republicans released a final version of a spending bill "would unravel school lunch standards the Agriculture Department proposed earlier this year, which included limiting the use of potatoes on the lunch line and delaying limits on sodium and delaying a requirement to boost whole grains," the AP reports.

"The bill also would allow tomato paste on pizzas to be counted as a vegetable, as it is now. USDA had wanted to prevent that."

  1. Wow, can't believe Congress is trying to pass this. What kind of message does that send to kids? Well at least I feel a little bit better about my diet in college . . .
