MN Rep Votes Against Free Lunches For Poor Students Since He’s “Yet To Meet A Hungry Minnesotan” [VIDEO]

NBC News reports:

A Republican state senator in Minnesota said Tuesday he was voting against a bill to provide free breakfast and lunch for school students in part because he’d never encountered anyone in the state who was hungry.

“I have yet to meet a person in Minnesota that is hungry,” Sen. Steve Drazkowski said in remarks on the floor of the State Capitol in St. Paul before voting on the legislation. “I have yet to meet a person in Minnesota that says they don’t have access to enough food to eat.”

“Now, I should say that hunger is a relative term,” added Drazkowski, 58. “I had a cereal bar for breakfast. I guess I’m hungry now.”
