So, most republicans are anti-welfare yet Mike Pence can't support a working mom. It's that kind of schizophrenic thinking that makes the republicans out of touch. Most families in this day and age have to work to keep their family's heads above water. They were not born with a silver spoon in their mouths.
In fairness, Pence implied that women should stay home and take care of children in 1997, which was almost 20 years ago. However, even for 1997, that would have probably been considered old-fashioned. Hopefully he has come to his senses and changed his mind about it since he wrote that.
Mike Pence had proven time and time again that he is out of touch and has an inability to relate to working moms, especially when it comes to supporting them. His entire political career has been in support of suppression of women's rights, taking them away and making it hard for them to receive the most basic rights that are given to them by the US Government. His thought processes and attitudes harken back to a time when very few women were in the workforce and has repeatedly refused to see that the world has changed around him. In simple terms, it's not 1950 anymore.
Yes, if Mike Pence can't back working moms, then he is completely out of touch with the times. Nowadays it is a reality that mothers work while raising their children. Whether they work at home as a freelancer or at-home worker, or they work for an employer out of the home, or they run their own businesses, working moms need to be recognized and supported for what they do.
