School Lunch Price Tag
No such thing as a free lunch.
Michelle Obama’s signature school lunch program, which reduces portions and mandates certain items on the lunch tray, also provides subsidies for 31 million students. As always, these nanny-state efforts place a significant cost on taxpayers. In 2014, the estimated price tag will be $16.4 billion, while 2013 totaled $15.9 billion. Remember, there’s no such thing as a free lunch.
