There’s this article going around that says Joe Biden blamed the economy on “Lazy American Women” who won’t work. It had a bunch of derogatory statements about women who stay home in it. When I first saw it I was enraged that he was demeaning the power of mothers.
But then I realized it was a bit over the top. Nobody in his right mind would say such nonsense. So I dug deeper. I can’t find anything to corroborate the article. But I found some of the phraseology in another article and found where the original speech was given in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Oct 25, 2016. It’s on Youtube (I’ve included it below this post).
Around 26-27 minutes into the speech he says that the economy could be fixed by putting women back to work and that women stay home because of the expense of childcare. So if the government subsidized childcare, more women could work and the gov’t would create all this extra revenue.
Ok, I still have a problem with what he ACTUALLY said. Many women WANT to stay home with their kids and they CAN’T because it’s next-to-impossible for families to exist on one income.
Our grandparents could do it, our parents could do it, but we can’t. So his logic is faulty. The REAL issue is that there was no redistribution of wealth until the late 1930’s and it didn’t become incredibly prevalent until the last 30-40 years.
The REAL underlying message is that politicians want to take your children cradle-to-grave and put moms to work as slaves to cover government politician’s spending sprees.
They blow more money than American families can keep up with, so they say, “Let’s take the kids and then put the mothers to work so they can pay more taxes to us. And with two parents working, that will kick families into a higher tax bracket where we can take more of what they earn.”
“We also get the added bonus of control and power because everyone knows “the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world” and we want to rule the world…
Politicians: “Mirror, mirror, on the wall… who has the most power of them all?”
Politicians: “Okay, better destroy those mothers! Or at least keep them from rocking the cradle.”
