    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Ann Romney has led a pretty tough life wealth aside and her trials and tribulations have made her realize how transient and superficial wealth is. I have heard several interviews with the woman and she seems to have a really good head on her shoulders.

    The article posted about maids and such was about GEORGE Romney.

    I'm not sure about that, but it's nice that the First Lady was against the Democratic strategist's words.

    Please?
    you mean you don't want her to use her 15 minutes of fame to propel herself onto the national stage and then run for elected office?

    Ed Bradley was interviewing a welfare recipeint a few years back and she referred to her welfare as a salary. Ed jumped on that, told her that HE draws a salary, as HE has a job.
    What she gets is NOT a salary. You work for a salary, and having unprotected sex is not work. Let's not condone or subsidize irresponsible behavior, please...
    A coworker once told me her story, her husband left for parts unknown and she had kids to support. The govt trained her in a good paying job, her mother tended the kids while she went to school and after she got the job. Once she got the job, the govt agency tried to continue paying her for childcare expenses. She said thanks but no thanks....they even offered to fill out the forms for her! again she said thanks but no thanks....The education part of her govt help made sense, but trying to keep her on as a "client" after she got the job was stupid from the taxpayers point of view.....
