    Labrador is running for Governor of Idaho now. I'd say he doesn't have a chance, but it is Idaho and they always vote against their own interests. Pathetic...

    We are one of only 3 countries on the planet that does not offer some sort of paid family leave when a baby is born. The other two countries that do not offer this basic right for families is Oman and Papa New Guinea​; but in America the profits of your boss are more important than the first 6 weeks of development for your newborn. I'm from Idaho and unfortunately I'm in this asshole's district.

    It always disgusts me to see the disconnect between an employer and their understanding of what their employees provide for their business. Everything a business accomplishes, all the profits, all the services, are accomplished by their staff. That business owners refuse to acknowledge that they are nothing without their staff is abhorrent and ignorant.
    The GOP: The party that supports families . . . independently wealthy enough to work as they feel like it.

    Most Americans across the political spectrum want paid leave. Especially maternity leave. There are less developed countries which offer this, far poorer than us and they can make it happen. Every industrialized nation offer this. So, it's better to toss your newborn in day care? Sick people. And these Republicans wonder why kids are having all kinds of behavioral issues?

    The party of self-appointed defenders of Christian family values spits on families.
    Republicans, a much greater menace to America than ISIS.
