The pro-life crowd want laws that limit the choices of pregnant mothers and their doctors. In Mississippi and Louisiana, for example, they drafting abortion laws that not are not making any exceptions. Politicians will be supplanting doctors.

What about the other end of the life spectrum? I am sure that some of us here have been given an advance directive form to complete. The form basically asks how aggressively you want doctors to keep you alive when you are dying and unable to communicate your final wishes. Why aren't pro-life politicians insisting that doctors use every possible medical procedure, measure and mechanical device to keep the patient alive for a while longer?

    Congressional Republicans desire to see Joe Biden fail trumps their desire to strengthen childrens' healthcare.

    Children in Red States Would Prosper with Federal Early Childhood Education Funding

    It’s time for moderate and conservative policymakers to get on board and ensure that these programs can become a reality

    Despite strong public support for early childhood programs on both sides of the aisle, the child care and pre-K provisions in Build Back Better have failed to garner support from Senate Republicans. The legislation calls for limiting child care costs to no more than seven percent of income for families earning up to 250 percent of state median income and guarantees access to free pre-K for all three- and four-year-olds in various settings that include public schools, centers, home-based child care providers, and Head Start agencies.

    Democrat Senator Joe Manchin has expressed strong support for pre-K but has been less committed to the child care provisions and removed his support for the current iteration of the bill in December. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has called the proposal to provide affordable child care a “toddler takeover” and argued that there would be implementation headaches similar to those experienced with the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Re-upping common anti-ACA messaging, McConnell stoked fears that parents wouldn’t be able to keep their current early care and education arrangements under Build Back Better and that child care services would become more costly for families, despite the fact that the bill would substantially expand child care assistance.

    But there is actually a lot for conservatives to like in the early childhood education provisions included in President Biden’s Build Back Better plan. Here are four reasons conservatives should support the child care and pre-K plans in Build Back Better:

    Yeah, Curt.

    The one consolation you Blue MAGAs have if you can't kill em, when they're pre-born, is that you, at least, can force them, cradle to grave, into your welfare state. But, the red states chafe even at that.

    And what about you, Hate? Are you, like the red states you mention, also against all of us together helping a mother and her child to get some of life’s basic requirements like food, medical care and shelter? Or do you too see that as forcing them to live cradled by a welfare state?

    I'm curious, I know you've never had children, but do you yourself feel any obligation whatsoever for the welfare of the children in our society? Even though they are not your biological children?
