From Jason Hunsicker's article in today's Kirksville Daily Express:
Davis earned national attention in 2009 when, while serving as chairperson of the House Children and Families Committee, she attacked a government program coordinated by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services that provides food to low-income children during the summer.
Thursday, she said “people pushing the left-wing ideology will use children as human shields to protect more government spending. But, I’m a big champion of the family, and I believe children are best served when they have their mom and dad feed them meals, not when they’re institutionalized.”
Asked to explain what she meant by “institutionalized,” Davis said these programs weakened families by pulling children away from the home for food and was “treating them like a herd of cattle.”
Mrs. Davis still doesn't understand that not all children have loving families or families that can afford to provide them with three square meals.
