House Republicans are trying to end Michelle Obama's school lunch initative and the First Lady's not happy about it.

She used a White House event on Tuesday to rally opposition to a bill passed by a House subcommittee that would allow districts to suspend the program.

From Fox News:

Seeing her nutritional standards under threat, the first lady hosted a discussion with school leaders on Tuesday afternoon at the White House where she ripped efforts to roll back those guidelines.

 

“This is unacceptable,” Obama said.

 

The first lady said families realize the country is facing a “health crisis,” and the “last thing we can afford to do right now is play politics with kids' health.”

It is not “unacceptable” to believe that local school districts, who deal with students and parents on a daily basis, would have a better idea of how to feed their students than Washington bureaucrats and bored un-elected activists who dare to tell the people’s elected representatives how to do their jobs.
