    So you in your abject stupidity don't think able bodied people should WORK for the money they receive? I worked for my money. So should they.

    So you in your abject stupidity don't get the irony? Remember, Obama hates stay-at-home moms because some political pundit who doesn't work for his campaign said that Ann Romney never worked a day in her life. It was (and probably still is) all over Fox News; there are how many threads about it on USMB?

    But I though being a mother WAS the hardest work on the planet...everyone says so.

    Isn't it the most honorable work on the planet, raising the next generation of children? Don't we want to encourage more parental involvement?

    Let's take a working poor family. Father works two jobs. Neither of his jobs provide healthcare for him and his family. They are poor enough to qualify for assistance so let's require the mother to work (despite having a young child) to "pay" for those benefits this family needs in order to survive.

    So now, the mother has to work just to pay for the daycare. This puts them just over the poverty level and no longer qualify for the benefits. Mother must go to work full time to make up for it and viola, we've created another latchkey kid that doesn't get help with their homework, fails in class and can never pull themselves out of poverty. Brilliant!

    Liberals think that Temporary Assistance to Needy Families actually means Permanent Assistance to Sit On Your Ass.
