Romney: Poor Women with 2 year olds “Need to go to work” (Hayes)

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes busts Mitt Romney on his faux outrage that stay at home moms should be said to be “not working.” In fact, apparently it is only rich mothers who are working while their nannies raise the children. Poor women? They are being spoiled by welfare, he alleges, that allows them to stay home with the children and need to discover “the dignity of work.”

Romney said, women who receive welfare assistance should get out of the home and work. “Even if you have a child two years of age, you need to go to work!”

  1. And their dignity will be further enhanced by his repeal of the law providing them with health insurance that they might no otherwise have had. All this is straight out of Dickens.

  2. this wag on twitter boiled it down and nailed it:

    @bpicampus: Moms dependent on husbands: paragons. Moms dependent on society: parasites. This is about Male Privilege.
