Rave this if you believe that the GOP only supports rich stay at home Moms.
Republicans can come out of the woodwork saying that Democrats don’t understand that “raising children is work.” But they can’t truly say they value the work of raising and caring for children when they continue to push policies that undermine any monetary value to that work.
Unless women and their children can have affordable health care that isn’t dependent on employment — either theirs or their spouse’s — they don’t really believe mothers exclusively raising children are working.
Unless women can receive a check each week that is equivalent to the amount that they would have to pay a daycare provider to provide the same services — and at extended hours — they don’t really believe mothers are working.
Unless they are willing to give them social security benefits on their own versus through their spouses — or a pension, or even just funds that they can invest for their own retirement down the road — they don’t really believe mothers are working.
And unless they offer real child tax credits that actually come close to what the feeding, clothing and medical bills of a child are for a year — and that doesn’t max out if it’s more than your taxable income — they don’t really believe mothers are working.
Dear GOP, I’m glad to hear that you are the party that really understands that moms are working when they raise their children. I’m anxious to hear exactly how much you have decided to pay us for that work.
