Pelosi: Childcare Is ‘Natural Extension’ Of O-Care

From The Hill:

Pelosi: We can win

By Mike Lillis | October 28, 2013

If Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) were to become Speaker again, she would work to pass a sweeping bill that would significantly expand federal childcare benefits.

In a sit-down interview in her office in the Capitol, the House minority leader stopped short of predicting that Democrats would regain the lower chamber in the 2014 midterm elections, but she had no hesitation in saying what she would use a majority for…

Atop her priority list as Speaker, she said, would be “comprehensive affordable, quality childcare” for working mothers, which she sees as a natural extension of ObamaCare. “That would have the biggest impact on women, families and … job creation,” Pelosi said…

Of a federal childcare law, she said: “This is the missing link in so many things that we’ve talked about. It is not exhaustive of all the things we want to do or have done with regard to women, but I do think it would unleash the power of women.” …

“I’ve changed my prediction … from, ‘We’re working to win the House’ to ‘We can win the House,’ ” Pelosi said.

There is also a sense that a popular presidential candidate — Hillary Clinton, for example — could produce a Democratic wave big enough to overcome the challenge of flipping districts drawn to protect incumbents, and propel the party back into the House majority in 2017.

Because no Congressional districts have ever been drawn to protect Democrats.

Under the Democrats’ dream scenario, Clinton would be sworn in with her party controlling both chambers of Congress.

Pelosi, for one, can barely disguise her delight at the thought of a Hillary Clinton White House. It would align the first female president with the Democrats’ women’s empowerment agenda…

Oh, boy. But if Obama gets control of the House, it will amount to the same thing.

By the way, hasn’t the Obama-Care roll-out been mostly the work of women? (Kathleen Sebelius and Marilyn Tavenner, for starters.) How has that been going?

    Oh, that’s just what we need. Government in charge of childcare. Government babysitters, followed by government primary school, followed by government secondary school, followed by government post graduate school, followed by a government job, followed by an early death at the hands of government healthcare.

    Doesn’t that sound like a productive STATE CENTERED existence? And once everyone is a cog in the government wheel making $100/hr in a land where the money is worth more as kindling than as currency, we’ll all be better off… yeah? Welcome to Obama’s fascist utopia.

      Ever heard of Head Start? Brought to us by a former NC democrat governor. The progressives won’t be happy until they control people from conception until death and on into the beyond.

      What am I saying? They will never be happy.

    Nancy Pelosi is not human. And I mean that quite literally. She is not a human being.
