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 days 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.

Egads. She looks like she was used as shielding for a self sustaining chain reaction of ugly.
There is so much BS flying out of DC these days..is it any wonder?
[ One thing you have to say about Rosa DeLauro, though, those communist New Havenites don’t send her to Congress because of her good looks: ]
I think it warps and twists many people on the outside as they are warped and twisted on the inside.
“I thought the same thing when I read this, what’s next, free Formula?”
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).
You missed one.
Someone should tell the enviro-nuts about this, they hate disposable diapers.....
“Cant afford diapers, cant feed em? DONT BREED DAMNIT!”
You may be on to something here. Here’s our new chant:
“Can’t Feed ‘em Don’t Breed ‘em”
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).
American politics, and our history of the last 50 years, is centered around our inability to deal with the war contraband from 1865.
It is becoming impossible to parody these fools.
Rosa is brain dead.
I believe this ghastly looking ‘female” no doubt depends upon Depends.
She is, however, the epitome of the typical Democrat female. (Or whatever she is.)
Greenies hate them until they have to use them. After that they are ex-Greenies.
Her face would make a train take a dirt road.
Just when you think you have heard it all...............
Star Trek alien?
You must be a couple of years behind. They have a program for that called WIC. http://www.fns.usda.gov/wic/
If these animals cannot afford to care for their children they shouldn’t have them.
I’m tired of being the godfather of all of these kids.
These Parasites should be given the choice of caring for their children or go to jail.But stop expecting the tax payer to care for them.We have our own families to care for.
