Mitt Romney to poor mothers: “Even if you have a child 2 years of age, you need to go to work.”

Mothers “should be required to work outside the home to receive Temporary Assistance for Needy Families benefits.”

Share the word: yet another example of the views of this “moderate” GOPer and his wise conservatism.

Romney noted that some had considered his proposal “heartless,” but he argued that the women would be better off having “the dignity of work” — a suggestion Ann Romney would likely take issue with.

Ann Romney and her husband’s campaign fired back hard at Rosen following her remark. “I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work,” Romney said on Twitter.”
