A new tax proposal proposed by Obama has many saying that he is coming after stay at home moms.
Obama is arguing for a $500 “second earner tax credit” for dual income couples in order to “help cover the additional costs faced by families in which both spouses work.”
Conservative Washington Examiner columnist Timothy Carney argued that Obama’s proposal shows that “he values working parents more than stay-at-home parents.”
“The president’s plan favors one model of combining work and family to the exclusion of other models. It offers tax relief only to families that fit a progressive model, and no tax relief to traditional families with young children and a mother at home,” said Bradford Wilcox, director of the National Marriage Project.
According to the Christian Post, this is not the first time Obama has attacked stay at home moms. Back in October, he said in a speech that staying home to raise children is “not a choice we want Americans to make.”
We think Obama needs to mind his own business, and allow mothers to decide for themselves how they want to raise their children.
