A few thoughts on Hilary Rosen, moms and work

azspot:

-None of the men who think parenthood is THE MOST IMPORTANT JOB IN THE WORLD seem willing to do it full-time themselves, even when, like Mitt Romney, they surely have the family money to enable them to be financially comfortable and still stay home full time;

-None of the men who think parenthood is THE MOST IMPORTANT JOB IN THE WORLD have ever suggested that if we value it so much, we should pay for it;

-None of the Republicans who think parenthood is THE MOST IMPORTANT JOB IN THE WORLD support legislation like federally-mandated maternity (and in an alternate universe, paternity) leave that would enable more parents to stay home for longer (or even reasonable) periods of time with newly-born children;

-Very few of the Republicans who think parenthood is THE MOST IMPORTANT JOB IN THE WORLD support legislation like national healthcare, which would help families who aren’t as rich as the Romneys to stay healthy, and which would enable more parents to stay home with their kids since health insurance would be one expense off the table;

    Basically Republicans only like children if either they are 1)a fetus or, 2)if your parents are rich enough to raise you...
