    Paul Ryan doesn't know about lunch programs and/or kids.
    This is what I observed over the years as a lunchroom monitor in our system.  If a child arrives with no lunch, or money, or money on his prepaid account, he will try to borrow some money, or cajole another kid into sharing his lunch.  The school doesn't allow lunch sharing due to allergies, and germs.  Usually the lunch lady, or a teacher will let him borrow a little money.  Sometimes there's a cache of snacks for such situations. But if worse comes to worse, the child has nothing to eat.  The other kids notice that, and they do not see it as character building as Ryan does. It is humiliating for the child, and he is HUNGRY.  
    What a jerk Paul Ryan is.
