Last week, the liberal women haters attacked the wife of Rep. Dr. Joe Heck for receiving unemployment compensation after she was laid off from her job at Heck's medical office. She is a RN.
From the LVRJ opinion page:
It is the silly season, of course, but this is much ado about not much.
In the first place, the attacks on the congressman's spouse aren't
very "progressive." Lisa Heck did nothing wrong. She isn't running for
office. The choices made here were hers. Liberals quite correctly insist
that husbands and wives are free to have separate careers, and that the
career choices of one should not be held against the other - unless the
wife in question is married to a GOP congressman, apparently.
More importantly, when the new farm bill was being debated by
Congress this month, Republicans proposed an asset test for those
receiving food stamps. Someone with no job and no income but a net worth
in the seven figures doesn't need a taxpayer grocery subsidy,
But Democrats defeated the food stamp asset test, indicating they're
all for allowing a multimillion-dollar lottery winner collect food
stamps. So how can they then imply that Lisa Heck did something wrong in
drawing her unemployment insurance benefits because her husband earns
$174,000 a year and has that much again in some retirement account? http://www.lvrj.com/opinion/unemployment-brouhaha-160494565.html
Why do Democrats and some liberals hate women, especially those who are conservative?
And why don't we have a means test for those receiving food stamps along with those receiving Social Security, farm subsidies etc.
But why do Democrats and some liberals hate women?
