It’s all “for the kids”, eh?
Calling those brown dark things out on the back lawn Tootsie Rolls.
LOL WOW its so much fun watching Dems dig their own graves
are even the low info voters eating this up?
They’ll need “tucked in” because the parents won’t be able to afford to heat the home.
But someone somewhere is working more.
If it wasn’t so sad, it would be funny how these cretins lined-up to deliver the talking points.
He fails to mention they will be tucking their children in at a Homeless shelter because they won’t be able to afford lodging if they have no job. These politicians have a lot of nerve. I really do hope karma comes back and bites them but good and hard.
Double strong wrong.
I think it’s ‘keine’ but still, a good pun.
So while I’m working and paying the taxes that pay for their subsidies, they’re tucking their kids in? @$#%#@&@^@&!!!
Obamacare Means More Kids Tucked In at Night Without Dinner
Pocan is openly gay.
Pocan identifies as a progressive Democrat, and is a member of a number of organizations, including Wisconsin Citizens Action, the American Civil Liberties Union, Fair Wisconsin and Midwest Progressive Elected Officials Network.
During his time as a state legislator, Pocan earned a reputation for moving the Wisconsin political debate to the left. One of the most outspoken progressive members of the state assembly, Pocan focused on difficult issues including corrections reform, the state budget, education funding, and fighting privatization schemes.
Nah. They will be tucking their children into beds in Section 8 housing. They will be safe and warm in their beds until the meth addicts start to shoot at each other.
Pocan came to Madison to attend college and shortly after earning a degree in journalism in 1986, opened up his own small business a union printing company he continues to own and run today. His active years at UW-Madison in College Democrats led to his election in 1991 to the Dane County Board of Supervisors where he served Madisons downtown community for three terms. In 1998, he was elected to succeed his long-time friend and ally Tammy Baldwin as the state representative from the 78th District, when she left for Congress.
On Wednesday, Congressman Mark Pocan (D-WI-02) argued that the Congressional Budget Office’s projection that Obamacare will incentivize about 2.5 million Americans to give up full-time work means “they might be able to tuck their child in bed at night.”
“But I would argue, part of what you’re saying is that people in aging populations, more people aren’t participating, that’s part of the statistics. People like my mom who worked until she was 70 at a Taco Bell don’t have to do that. But secondly it could be someone on the lower end who now is working two part-time jobs instead of three part-time jobs. And what that means is instead, they might be able to tuck their child in bed at night, and read a bed-time story, or go to an activity. Which means they’re better off.”
Washington Examiner columnist Byron York called Pocan’s line the “birth of a talking point.”
In response to the CBO report projecting Obamacare’s impact on the labor force, most liberals have taken up some form of Pocan’s argument: that Obamacare is “liberating” millions of Americans from full-time work.
Thanks. My last German class was circa 1975.
and so when the Democrats encouraged women to work and the kids were not tucked in that was an oversight on their behalf?
They’re morphing to the total state with zero responsibility for anyone. Its something that even hard core communists have never attempted to do.
Enough with this emotional crap! I am tired of it. And, if you stopped abortion there’d be even MORE kids to be tucked in at night.....but they don’t count do they congressman?
Yes, tucked in as they go to bed at night hungry and worried about their well being because their parents no longer have a job. Lame!!!
These people are just plain evil. It’s the “Demonic Party”.
I get to tuck my kid in at night and I work 6-4. How can this be?
For next weeks headline, democrat senators will piss on our legs and tell us its raining!
Meals are not a problem. Kids can get three meals a day at school. But kids like homes-preferably heated or cooled depending on the season, and clothes, and shoes, a bike, school supplies, possibly playing on a sports team or some kind of music/dance/art lessons, and somewhere down the road the chance to pursue higher education.
But I guess tucking the kids in at night is more important than providing them with any of those other things.
Or are all the poor schlubs who don't have kids to tuck in at night or whose kids are grown supposed to subsidized those who do have kids, but don't want to work enough to provide for them?
These Rats are despicable. They are perpetuating a myth that savings you might get by becoming Obamacarebots will make up for not having an income.
My last Germen class was in 1967 but drunk posting compels one to weigh in whether one is remotely correct or not.
I’m sure we’ll hear from others.
It's so much better now then when those kids lived in a house and slept in a too large bed. now it's much more comfy and cozy with them being tucked in, in the back seat of a car.
Heck, maybe well should all stop working so we can tuck our kids in and pursue our dreams while being covered by the all wonderful obamacare miracle.
so other families will spend less time with their kids working more hours to support these parasites
"Let them eat cake" is the traditional translation of the French phrase "Qu'ils mangent de la brioche", supposedly spoken by "a great princess" upon learning that the peasants had no bread. Since brioche was made from dough enriched with butter and eggs, and those ingredients were even more scarce and more costly than dough, making brioche even more out of the reach of the peasants than bread, the quote supposedly would reflect the princess's obliviousness as to the condition of the people.
Only hungrier. But don’t worry, we’ll fix that next.
That could be called the Woody Allen bill.
Funny how liberal "minds" work.
Yes, when there is no work to be found I guess you WOULD have more time to "tuck your kids in" at night.
Imagine how people who lived in the Depression felt.
My guess is they were NOT "happy" about that situation.
Glad mommy is here to tuck you in. I'm sorry that daddy can't find a f%$@ing JOB!
And compare a married 1930s daddy vs. a 2014 "baby-daddy".
At least Uncle Sugar takes care of 2014 spawn.
I mean, thank goodness that 2014 taxpayer "takes care" of baby spawn.
Shhh... taxpayer daddy has to work tomorrow.
But all is well, because HE will provide.
Sleep well, because taxpayer daddy has to work.
Don't wake tax-sucking baby daddy because he has a busy day watching HD-TV while lounging on the couch.
They’ll either try to defend their “leaders” or they’ll just sit and stare at the TV.
Those who will be tucking in their children might get a little upset.
You have to remember this is the party of the member who is afraid Guam will tip over. And another member who thinks Neil Armstrong walked on Mars. They’ll always say what they’re told to say. In fact, that’s usually the only time they ever say anything that sounds intelligent. Not this time, though.
Isn’t it sad that the gopE leaders don’t make fun of the other party. That would get so much press coverage. The reporters would try to make them look bad but the people watching the news would see the humor and stupidity.
Don’t forget that another part of their dream is for gay scout leaders to tuck little boys into their sleeping bags at night.
And in other news, obama voters demonstrated their thanks for the president raising their chocolate ration to 20 grams.
Do the Democrats have some contest going on to see who can make up the lamest lipstick to put on the ACA pig.
This fat head personifies that liberalism is a mental disorder. Loon.
My GAYDAR is going off the charts, and then I saw #17.....yikes.....are there ANY heterosexual DEMOCRATS left in the country?
