Kirsten Gillibrand has had it with McDonald’s.
“Have you been to McDonald’s and looked up on that wall and seen what a Big Mac is?” Gillibrand said, laughing, as she spoke on a conference call with reporters this afternoon to announce a new proposal to counter childhood obesity. “Have you looked at that lately? If you had, you wouldn’t be ordering a Big Mac. It’s like your whole daily caloric intake is in a Big Mac. It’s a lot of calories.”
Gillibrand proposed investing $3.9 billion of federal funding to increase the federal reimbursement rates for schools so that they could spend 70 cents more a day on a more nutritious lunch.
