North Dakota legislators shame our state when they deny free milk to low-income primary school-aged kids.
Just this week the Education Committee in the ND legislature voted down a bill to provide a milk snack to children from low income homes. This action is stingy and cruel. These are the Scrooges who paid Bob Cratchet a wage so low that he could not adequately feed his family.
The North Dakota treasury is bulging with money. We can afford a container of milk for low income kids. Instead we give tax breaks to Oil Companies?
These parsimonious officials make the US Congress look almost functional----they shame our state!
