    Obama on Moms Who Stay Home to Raise Kids: 'That's Not a Choice We Want Americans to Make' | The Weekly Standard

    Now, what I would hope what he meant to say was something like "...that's not a choice we want Americans TO HAVE to make...", that's simply not what he actually said.
    Obama states a fact and he's the one trying to hurt families????? Republicans block any attempt to assure single income families have a liveable wage?? Republicans also block any attempt to assure women are paid equally for the same job??

    Hmm, how totally without logic do you have to be to buy into this type of propaganda?

    Wow. And now you are comparing him to Romania. Huh. Quite a leap.
    Greetings, paddymcdougall.

    No comparison! Ceausescu was a dictator who could do anything he liked. My point was that he did try it in Romania, it was very unpopular, and the people cheered when he and his wife were executed. Not everyone wants the government to start indoctrinating children in political ideology starting in pre-school, it seems, no matter where they live.

    And then you talk about " The idea that adding "free" daycare (calling it pre-school only increases the cost) makes any given job hire more moms" when he was talking about women who already have jobs?

    C'mon ttwtt, even you can see that's not honest
    Total BS - how does a "stay at home mom" already have a job?

    I remember seeing pictures of the children in Romania and how they suffered as a result of Romanian dictator Ceausesco's decision to do exactly what is being proposed here. He and his wife were executed by firing squad in 1989 - 120 bullets were found in their bodies, BTW, and the people cheered! Just saying....
    you will have to provide a link showing us that ceausesco's assassination was because he provided greater child care opportunities for romania's children before i find your story credible

    You think him saying that kids should be in pre-schools is an attempt to hurt families? How have Republicans tried to block equal pay for women?

    Reading (the OP) is for the mental - I mean fundamental.
    In the speech, he's clearly talking about working mothers.

    And too often, parents have no choice but to put their kids in cheaper daycare that maybe doesn’t have the kinds of programming that makes a big difference in a child’s development. And sometimes there may just not be any slots, or the best programs may be too far away. And sometimes, someone, usually mom, leaves the workplace to stay home with the kids, which then leaves her earning a lower wage for the rest of her life as a result. And that’s not a choice we want Americans to make.
    Here's the quote from the OP, which you imply you've read
    "Sometimes, someone, usually mom, leaves the workplace to stay home with the kids, which then leaves her earning a lower wage for the rest of her life as a result. And that’s not a choice we want Americans to make."
    How does the mom "leave the workplace" if she's not working?

    Remember, reading is fundamental
