President Trump promised to make big changes and he has followed through. He also promised to shed the country of the some of the needlessly regulatory programs Obama put in place.
As Trump’s agenda has worked its way through Washington, he slashed Obama’s regulations and reopened American business to innovation.
He has shed subsidies Obama put in place that picked winners and loser in markets and worked to distort all-important market efficiencies.
Basically, he is erasing Obama’s tenure and rule by fiat while restoring common sense across the land.
From ABC News: The Trump administration has finalized a rollback of school lunch regulations championed for years by former first lady Michelle Obama.
Under the rules first announced last year, schools are now allowed to offer more flavored milk options, like chocolate. Additionally, the Obama-era efforts to limit sodium content in school lunches have been delayed or partially eliminated. The announcement Thursday doesn’t require schools to make any changes, but allows them to relax restrictions on those products.
The changes will impact 99,000 schools and institutions that feed 30 million children every year, according to the Department of Agriculture.
At a May 2017 press conference first announcing the move to deregulate school food, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said the decision was not meant to reduce nutritional standards. He argued that children would avoid nutritious foods all together if they weren’t given more flavored options.
“I wouldn’t be as big as I am today without chocolate milk,” Perdue said at the time.
The decision is part of the Trump administration’s broad efforts to reduce “unnecessary regulatory burdens” across the federal government.
From The Daily Caller: Julie Gunlock of The Independent Women’s Forum celebrated the reversal of former first lady Michelle Obama’s school lunch rules on “Fox & Friends” Monday, saying children will get more nourishment from the new menus.
“These reforms that went through in 2010 pushed by Michelle Obama, were well-intentioned, but in reality kids were not eating the food,” Gunlock said. “And we saw that there was a major food waste problem developing in some of these schools.”
The Independent Women’s Forum is a conservative non-profit focused on informing women about major economic and social issues throughout the country.
Gunlock claimed students were so unhappy with the quality of the food they began throwing the meals into the trash.
