“‘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…”
-Rosa DeLauro (D.-Conn.)
I think, that now, I have heard it all. Government now, is being urged to provide free diapers for children in daycare because they will not be allowed into daycare without diapers. So the D.I.A.P.E.R. act is being proposed. D.I.A.P.E.R. stands for The Diaper Investment and Aid to Promote Economic Recovery Act. This stupidity is being proposed by Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D.-Conn.), to empower struggling families by directing the federal government to distribute free diapers through daycare centers. Folks, they are now trying to make diapers another entitlement that we all have to pay for.
No, I am not making this one up. I wish I was. It would be more believable, and easier to swallow.
DeLauro said in a letter to congressional colleagues urging them to co-sponsor her bill. Without diapers, children are not allowed to attend daycare, said DeLauro, who described those in need as a ‘lost generation of Americans.'”
The lost generation of Americans? I think this DeLauro is part of a lost generation. My generation wasn’t lost. We also didn’t wear disposable diapers either. Our mothers put cloth diapers on us, and when they were dirty, they put them in the wash and washed them so they could be reused. And we grew up and survived childhood. Then, if we ran out of diapers because they wore out, mom got out the sewing machines and made more. For crying out outside folks. I know I don’t want to pay for diapers for someone else to use on their kids, when it isn’t necessary. Do you? And to top this all off, this is only for women with children in day care. If we do this, won’t the ones who take care of their own kids at home, then say that they are being discriminated against? And you know where that will lead…….
This whole entitlement mentality is getting ridiculous to the power of ten. It has to stop. People can take care of themselves a heck of a lot more than anyone anymore thinks they can. The idea that the we cannot take care of ourselves is actually getting rid of those ideas. SO QUIT IT!!!
May God Bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country
God Bless America, Bless all Americans, and bless us to start using more common sense.
