Congress is bipartisan on Pizza and Fries

Anyone who has ever been around the Hill while congress burns the midnight oil on legislation knows that Pizza, Burgers and fries are the food of choice for those who make the choices on votes.  So why not afford school children the same love.  The Washington Post shared the roll call to cast Shame, Shame, Shame on Congress.

Here is a rule any parent knows, if they don’t like it, they will find a way to share it with the Dog or Garbage.  Few dogs have ever had the pleasure of a Pizza fed under the table, and from personal experience as a child, the garbage dumpster was much lighter on “Pizza Day”.  But just for fun we figured we would share the roll call and allow you to consider this in your 2012 election selection.
