"Well, What I meant Was..."

Seems like that outrage that the Right had for the "slanderous" comments against Ann Romney for being a stay-at-home-mom and not working outside the home (taken out of context, we know) only mattered if you were a RICH mom. Everybody else having that opportunity......not so much.

Looks like the Repubs shot down a Dem attempt to apply that same rule, to someone receiving benefits. "They need the experience of work" or better yet, the old "they need some skin in the game." They LOVE that one. 

Some Republicans became irate as they tried to square their views on the work of stay-at-home mothers with the aim of the Democratic proposal.
"Anybody who knows what they're talking about would know it's darn hard work," said Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas), a former chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee. "The entire issue is that women bear a disproportionate share of the hard work. Birthing, carrying, the whole thing -- it's hard work."
But he raised his voice when asked if that meant he could support the Democratic bill.
"Of course not!" he said. "I'm for jobs!"
Rep. Connie Mack (R-Fla.), who is running for Senate, called the Democratic bill "disgusting."
............from Huff Post today.

 If these guys would spend more time thinking about other people, the country as a whole, instead of how to fatten their bottom line and throwing everybody else the crumbs.....this country MIGHT have a chance. Now, if we could all be born wealthy........
