Rev. Peterson: 'Is this the White House, or Big Mamma's House?'

LOS ANGELES, (christiansunite.com) -- Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, Founder and President of BOND Action, is criticizing First Lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" campaign targeting childhood obesity as one more attempt by the administration to control and encroach on the freedoms of the American people. The following is Rev. Peterson's statement regarding this matter:

"Michelle Obama's 'Let's Move' campaign to control childhood obesity is an attempt by the White House and the federal government to shackle the food industry and limit the choices of Americans.

"This ambitious campaign which includes $1 billion in federal money to improve school breakfast and lunches is another example of the Obama nanny state. First, we had President Obama trying to force his socialist government-run health care plan on the American public--now we have the first lady trying to control the nation's diet--is this the White House, or big mamma's house?

"Yes, parents should feed their kids healthy diets and the public schools should raise their standards and offer healthy alternatives--but we don't need to dump more tax-payer dollars into failing government programs. Furthermore, the federal government has no business attempting to control what American parents feed their kids. They also don't have the right to dictate to private companies what types of foods and beverages they can sell to consumers and vendors.

"The First Lady wants to pave her legacy on the backs of American children, but this attempt to control the American diet and an entire industry is destined to fail like Obamacare. The road to hell is paved with good intentions and that's exactly where the 'Let's Move' campaign and the Obamas socialist agenda would take this nation. Mrs. Obama, keep your hands off our children!"
