The Obama administration wants more women to work outside the home, and it is examining ways to make that happen.
Among other things, Stevenson said the Working Families Summit will consider ways to "release constraints" on women, including their role as care-givers, which deprive them of wages and career opportunities:
(President Obama also spoke of the "burdens" on women Wednesday. During a meeting with female members of Congress, he noted that "women are still the ones that are carrying the greatest burden when it comes to trying to balance family and work. Because of inadequate child care or the inability to get paid leave for a sick child or an ailing parent, they end up suffering the burdens, and by the way, that means families are suffering the burden because increasingly, women are a critical breadwinner for families all across the country.")

govt - we will become your parents. we’ve been doing it more and more since the 60s.
‘burdens’ on women.
you know children are burdens. so says president mom jeans.
No need to find new ways to ease parenthood so the mom and pop can work.
Look no farther than the old Soviet Union model of removing kids from home and allowing them grow up and be indoctrinated in state run programs and institutions.
Actually, maybe it's not such a bad idea. As it is, it seems like the only people in the US who are having children are illegal aliens and Muslims.
They talk about War on Women, but as the labor participation rate continues to plummet, and as they try to get more women actively working, it sure starts to feel like a War on Working Men.
So INSTEAD of freeing women from WORK, the government wants to FREE them from raising their family SO they can work??
yep, and there are great economies in doing so.
indoctrination by volume.
obamidiots mass produced!
and wait! theres more! the bulk savings in buying potato greens, red oil and other groceries
welcome to the age of obam youth!
The Europeans get a lot of time off too. They say Americans are overworked.
“that Obama’s vision for federal involvement in the lives of very young children does not stop with 4-year-olds. Obama’s budget calls for HHS to spend $15 billion over 10 years to fund an Obamacare provision called the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program. An HHS budget document says this program will send government-funded “nurses, social workers, and other professionals” into people’s homes to “improve parenting skills.” “I think that there still needs to be great understanding of what the president has put on the table is really a birth-to-five proposal, recognizing that you can’t start at 4-year-olds,” Sebelius said at the National Press Club. “We really need to start at birth,” said Sebelius. “So, there will be an enhancement of home-visiting”
Crackhead. Besides, thanks to him and to those who share his policy beliefs, THERE ARE NO JOBS!! How can expanding the pool of labor be on the to-do list when there’s already an excess supply? Nitwit. This kind of idiocy is what happens when you let people play with the levers of power who don’t understand how stuff works.
woe is wymyn
first they are punished with children
then they have to carry that burden that keeps them from enjoying their pink collar jobs
not to mention how hard it is to shop for groceries when letters on the labels aren’t an inch high and don’t tell you how many servings and calories per serving
Wow, surprisingly open-minded on The Won's part. I mean, it's obvious to all of US that drooling goobermint drones could learn a lot from normal parents, assuming they're at least the level referred to as "educable" or "trainable", but I never expected him to admit it. Kudos.
Take a load off Fanny, and they put the load right on me.
Yep, if mandatory kindergarten is good, why not mandatory preschool and daycare?
not only a burden but a punishment (won’t punish them with a baby)
Is moochie doin’ her some thinkin’ on her vaca to china? It’s such a “burden” to have to fly on a huge jet with a whole passel of luggage toters and a couple of kids taggin’ along to see how the lower half lives. ‘Course they’ll never see how the real Chinese people live/survive.
Obama needs to rally Congress to propose a working women amendment to the Constitution to the states for ratification. And if the states choose to ratify his amendment then Congress will have the specific power that it needs to make legislation to support Obama to demonize the family unit as a "burden" in order to win votes from working woman and Obama will be a hero. /sarc
I like your perspective.
