Federal spending went from $2 Trillion in 2002 to $4 Trillion today in just two Presidencies. 

[Wish I could cut and paste the numbers in here, year by year.]

Amazingly, Republicans controlled the House of Representatives during 12 of those 16 years.

Big government 'conservatism'.  It gives Trump a shiny, soft object to point to.  Hopefully a Republican House can stop it.

Reform and replace existing programs first.

Wouldn't a stay at home mom need a government support program more than a career, daycare mom.  Where is her government paid 'maternity program'?  You have to ne unmarried, unsupported to get it?  Republicans playing on a Democrat playing field lose.   Hillary has WAY bigger ideas than this.  You can't afford all of her ideas!

The Clintons sold us family leave based on the idea it was unpaid, then immediately screamed how unfair it was to have people unpaid to not work.

If 6 weeks is good, isn't 8 weeks better, 20 weeks great, forever perfect?

Don't tell the government but women in my family were waterskiing in the last 6 weeks before birth.  We could have used some government-paid boat gas.

Grow the economy stupid.

I don't get it.  What is going on with all these relatives of politicians getting all this government money.  First we hear of Manchin's daughter getting  deal to supply epi pen to what 60000 school across the country and I saw this not to long as well as today:

Who is watching this stuff?
this must be the tip of the iceberg

I assume Kerry's kid is getting a salary from this "nonprofit".  All this stuff sounds just so well meaning but is it?
