Apparently Debbie Wasserman-Schultz isn’t a big fan of small children or breastfeeding Mommies.
According to the Washington Post:
A number of local chapters of the National Organization for Women are denouncing the DNC convention rules, saying that they unfairly exclude mothers with young children. …
The group of southern California chapters of NOW are pointing to the lack of childcare at the conventions, as well as the difficulty female delegates have in bringing children to the convention floor. According to the activists, the DNC is requiring young children to have credentials to come onto the convention floor with their parents.
“Moms with young children 6 years of age and under who cannot be left at home, some of whom are breastfeeding, are relegated to second-class status within the Democratic Convention, unable to participate as a delegate due to antiquated policies and inadequate accommodations that were apparently in place before Women’s suffrage,” Susie Shannon, a delegate to the 2012 DNC Convention.
Exactly what type of credentials does Debbie expect children to have? Is she going to demand ID like the Massachusetts Democrats did at their convention?

Joe Kennedy III, of the Massachusetts Kennedy clan, is running for State Representative in Massachusetts District 4 (which includes towns like Fall River, Brookline and Mildford). In an interview on August 20th with WickedLocal, Kennedy told the editorial staff that he is:
…open to new taxes, but said Congress needs to use a balanced approach that includes spending cuts and targets new revenue. The candidate said that he thinks people will be willing to spend more on taxes if there is a clear, certain plan to get the economy on track. [emphasis added]
The trust fund baby who has never had to worry about money a minute in his life believes that voters in his district, who are having a hard time putting food on the table, will be okay with higher taxes? He actually believes that people want to shell out more cash for a government that is already over bloated and extremely wasteful. Kennedy proves that he is completely out-of-touch with the realities of working and middle class people.
It’s almost egregious that he would mention raising taxes on people with a steady unemployment rate of 8.3% thanks to Democrat policies; foreclosures still happening and people with mortgages under water; food prices and gas prices continuing to rise and finally the fact that Massachusetts residents already pay a lot in taxes! Not to mention that he’d be raising taxes on the entire country, not just a district that would be insane enough to actually vote for him.
