Does Rush Limbaugh Hate Working Moms?
Credit Image: x86x86 via FlickrWe’ve identified a cycle that we think we can help break. And I’m posting here to ask you to help.
FREE food stamps/SNAP/WIC
FREE lunches, breakfasts and sometimes even dinner
Now, FREE diapers?
Why on earth are they having children while on entitlements?
I can’t believe how many babies out there are just looking for a free ride. My babies worked hard to earn their diapers. Handing them out to undeserving babies just promotes laziness. Um, wait. I forgot that all babies are completely helpless and incapable of meeting their own needs.
Apparently the original commenter had been listening to Rush Limbaugh, who said on his radio show:
I am not making up the diaper bill, folks. I'm not making up anything I said about it. Free diapers for every mother who has a kid in daycare. If you're a stay-at-home mother or unemployed you and don't use daycare you don't get free diapers. I mean this gives a new meaning to the term pampering the poor. Just absurd.
Can't have children staying home with their mothers. Why, that would be horrible. Can't have mothers at home with their kids. Why, we need the kids in the daycare center so we can corrupt 'em and pollute 'em and propagandize 'em, indoctrinate 'em.
So I just want to clarify (in case Mr. Limbaugh is spending any time on BlogHer.com) that the DIAPER act is not asking for additional monies, nor is it seeking to incentivize mothers to work by providing free diapers. As if. I share his words in this space because they got me pretty fired up, and I want them to have the same effect on you.
If you are in support of liberating publicly funded daycares to purchase diaper supplies with some of their monies – if they choose – please sign the online petition. If you’d like more ways to raise awareness about diaper need, please visit us at Help A Mother Out.
