Republican Rep. Todd Akin, who is running for Senate in Missouri, said Thursday that he opposes National School Lunch Program.
From the Kansas City Star:
“Is it something the federal government should do?” Akin said. “I answer it no ... I think the federal government should be out of the education business.”
Akin made the statement outside the 60th annual Governor’s Ham Breakfast at the fair and on the week many students are heading back to the classroom.
