Thread Name: BS: Benefits/Welfare.
Subject: RE: BS: Benefits/Welfare.
I said, If society does not help its poorest and does nothing to show them a way out of poverty. I did NOT say that welfare was "Show(ing) them a way out of poverty."

If the Cons. really cared about mothers and children, really were "Focused on the Family" we would have a country which pays mothers and/or fathers a living wage to stay home with their children until they start school; we would have more employers who offer on-site childcare and/or shared work hours, making sure one parent can be home when the kids get off from school; we'd have free preventative medical care for all and more education aabout and availability of birth control methods. BUT, unless the family is white, with both parents present, and upper middle-class and above, the Cons. don't give a damn.
