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.

YOURS is the insanity. Run liberals through a wood chipper, add them to the compost pile, then fertilize your vegetable garden with them. They will then experience their PROFESSED fondest dream, that of feeding the hungry!!! Let libs go to WAIST, not waste.
Anybody here know the Liberal definition of “Free”?
I’m really nothing to look at, but what was DeLauro thinking when she bought those glasses? That it would make her look good? They makes her look even uglier.
12-20 cloth diapers Is all a family needs per baby. Buy 2 a month through pregnancy. Everyone can afford it.
Left over Hippie from the 60’s???
That’s a woman? Damn
She and her spouse are involved in a ponsi scheme ate feds should have been involved in years ago.
