Democrats care about people after they are born
Rightardia thinks the GOP antagonism to women making choices about pregnancy and contraception is racially motivated.
Essentially Republicans wants more women to have white babies because there will be more Hispanics, blacks and other minorities in the US than whites in the next two or three decades.
That demographic change does not bode well for the GOP.
Of course, once a child is born, Republicans want to make sure the family can take care of the child because the GOP is anti-welfare.
Certainly we cannot take taxes out of the pockets of the one per cent to help needy people, now can we?
Newt Gingrich was the politician who led the charge against (ADC). This law was replaced by the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) which provided lifetime benefits to women of 3 to 5 years.
The GOP has also opposed Head Start and student lunch programs. In Maine legislation was passed to "reform" child welfare laws.
Paul Ryan also wants to scale back Pell Grants and other programs that help students attend college. Of course, in Europe "public" secondary schools last 6-7 years, so students don't need these loans
The GOP, in general, seems hell bent on making life harder for the middle class.
