Two-Faced Republicans

Ed Bruske at Grist has a piece on how the House Appropriations committee wants the USDA to change their school lunch guidelines (fruits and veggies, all the stuff kids don't like but the foodies do.)  But USDA says: No, the legislation passed last year rules and not the appropriations language.

Meanwhile, as I wrote yesterday, the House Ag committee wants to overrule what the House Appropriations committee did.

I call the Republicans two-faced, but that's wrong, or rather all sides are two-faced.  Everyone will take advantage of all the multiple choke points and bypasses provided by our system to advance their position and hinder the opposition.  It's "politics", or rather the way politics operates within our historic framework.
