A Republican vision for America – ‘Rep. Kingston: We will ‘gain as a society’ by forcing hungry kids to sweep floors to eat’
Shades of Newt Gingrich.
Oh and FYI on Jack’s net worth?
‘Jack Kingston (R-Ga), 2011 – ‘Net Worth: From $2,269,648 to $3,532,637’

Poor children are lazy and need to work for what their betters ‘give’ them.
‘A Republican congressman from Georgia who is hoping to be party’s next Senate nominee said over the weekend that poor children should have to pay or sweep floors if they wanted to eat school lunches’.
“I’m on the Agriculture Committee, we have jurisdiction over the school lunch,” Rep. Jack Kingston explained to the Jackson County Republican Party in a clip obtained by The Huffington Post’s Amanda Terkel. “School lunch program is very expensive.”
“But one of the things I’ve talked to the secretary of agriculture about: Why don’t you have the kids pay a dime, pay a nickel to instill in them that there is, in fact, no such thing as a free lunch?” he suggested. “Or maybe sweep the floor of the cafeteria –– and yes, I understand that that would be an administrative problem, and I understand that it would probably lose you money.”
“But think what we would gain as a society in getting people — getting the myth out of their head that there is such a thing as a free lunch,” Kingston added’.
“Really poor children, in really poor neighborhoods have no habits of working and have nobody around them who works so they have no habit of showing up on Monday,” the Georgia Republican insisted. “They have no habit of staying all day, they have no habit of I do this and you give me cash, unless it is illegal.”
