Rep. Rosa Delauro Pushes Bill That Gives Free Diapers To The Poor
www.humanevents.com ^ | 10/19/2011 | Audrey Hudson

Posted on 10/19/2011 3:17:51 PM PDT by #1CTYankee

An economic recovery bill authored by Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D.-Conn.) seeks to empower struggling families by directing the federal government to distribute free diapers through day care centers.

The Diaper Investment and Aid to Promote Economic Recovery Act (DIAPER Act) would “relieve some of the stress on families facing hardship in this economy” by providing this direct service, DeLauro said in a letter to congressional colleagues urging them to co-sponsor her bill.

Without diapers, children are not allowed to attend day care, said DeLauro, who described those in need as a “lost generation of Americans.”

“In fact, over one in five mothers have had to skip an obligation and stay home with their child because of lack of diapers,” DeLauro said. “And losing out on day care makes it even harder for parents to put in a full day’s work.”

“We all believe that nothing we do in government is as important as ensuring the next generation has the tools they need to thrive. But for our children and our nation to succeed, we have to support their development, their families, and the public policies that ensure opportunity. Ensuring that low-income families have access to diapers through the DIAPER Act is one of those policies that will make a difference, and I urge you to become an original co-sponsor,” DeLauro wrote in the Oct. 5 letter.

Rosa is almost as much as rich as she is stupid.

I’m pretty sure the free diapers will have the Constitution printed on the inside.

What kind of s**t is this?

I paid to raise my own kids. I paid taxes so that others’
kids could go to college for free while I paid inflated tuition. Now I’m supposed to buy someone else’s diapers?

Why can’t they use cloth diapers and wash them? 9 dozen will last you through 4 babies. That’s what I did.

Holy smokes - I figured this was from one of the “semi-satirical” Web sites that sometimes confuses people or was Human Events trying their version. Nope. This is real. She put out a press release almost 2 weeks ago. Good grief. Free stuff for everyone!!! There is an unlimited pot of gold held by “billionaires and millionaires” to pay for this!!

Back in the day Diapers were made of cloth, If nothing else was around they tore up sheets.

I cannot understand why the Greenies would even think of handing out Paper diapers. It takes a lot of trees to make diapers.

Go back to the cloth ones and wash them.

So the 53% is supposed to take regular loads off the "99%"?

My mom used cloth diapers on me (okay, that was just about all there was).

Still, I bet all those greenies out there would think that was a good idea...recycle an' all that.

This is an EMERGENCY!!!!

Everyone, send DeLauro every dirty diaper that you can get your hands on.

Give until it hurts... it’s for the children.

Stop the insanity and do what I do...... bury the lib’s under your house.

Well, the democrat poor need diapers especially if they are tied down with children and voted for 0bama.

We wouldn't want democrats known as the wet ones would we?

Of course I don't know how the "sh!t" part of it could be contained anyway with or without diapers since they are so full of it.

Thank you darlin’.

Washed them and hung them on the line - before we could afford an electric dryer.

Never used the diaper (laundry) service either. When did they go out of business I wonder?

That’s one reason why our kids were potty trained early - right????

I think they make disposable diapers for 1st graders. There’s money in them there diapers.

Just what we need, another reason not to bother looking for a job!
When are they going to realize that too much help actually causes damage.
Both people 'helped' and the ones paying for it are hurting already.

Why not? They get free food, rent, college, etc.

Maybe that welfare cow that claimed the Kenyan Pirate would pay for her gas & rent was actually letting the cat out of the bag - she knew something we didn’t (though really, we did).

BTW, DeLauro’s New Haven district has an extensive “Diaper Bank” that already distributes free diapers to so-called “poor” people (you know, the ones who have Comcast cable, 55” flat screens, Wii, Playstation, Nintendo DS for all kids, gold jewelry and designer shoes and a Lexus SUV).
