Ann Crittendon thinks middle class women should be paid by the government ((taxpayers) to stay home and raise children. She also thinks these women should get free lifetime health care, and hiring preference when they go back to work.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I don't believe in paying women to stay home and have kids. That was called Welfare, and we are still trying to get rid of that.
I believe everyone should have free lifetime health care, but I don't think there is any way to pay for it.
And I believe that everyone should have a hiring preference, but then it wouldn't be a preference, would it.

Free isn't free it alway costs us (taxpayers) a lot.

I also don't believe in the current reparations that they are talking about for the African-Americans, where they each get a check for a million dollars, again paid for by us (taxpayers).

And I am a Berkeley bleeding heart liberal.
