Budget Pizza

Written by Rob Rogers on .

You may have heard that Congress declared pizza a vegetable. Well, actually, they simply refused to undo the special treatment tomato paste receives under school lunch regulations. Currently, an eighth of a cup of tomato paste is given the same nutritional value as half a cup of vegetables. Obama wanted to take away tomato paste's special privileges so kids would get more real vegetables in their lunches but Congress nixed the idea. They seem to be equally out of touch when it comes to the health of our economy.
