If their is one thing about ReThugs, it's the inconsistencies. They claim to be such family supporters, but when they have the opportunity to really show some love for families that are not their own, they want the market forces to decide who gets to be a good parent. I hate them. Plus, the spineless Democrats in Congress have only proposed this for federal employees & it's only four weeks in duration. Granted, we have to start somewhere, but I believe the days of incremental change have long since passed us by & we need to address these important issues with speed & certainty. I'm a little tired of the whining that we just don't have the votes. Here's a little advice: go get the votes, for christ's sake, it just ain't that difficult.
Unnecessary for whom? & since when did being a parent become an entitlement?And the White House threatened to veto the bill, calling it a "costly, unnecessary, new paid leave entitlement."
