I have to say, I was utterly stunned when I read this about Romney’s speech to the Club For Growth:
Ironically, this came in the same speech that he likened Hillary Clinton to Karl Marx. I’m not sure whether Romney sees this as a way to reach out to evangelicals, and he accidentally mixed up the speech he was supposed to give to the Value Voters Summit, or what, but the idea of spending taxpayer money on federally-mandated parenting classes is like taking a dagger to small-government conservatives. It would take the idea of a paternalistic government to a whole new level.
I did some initial research, and this looks like the Massachusetts proposal Romney was referring to:
These parents will also receive a guidebook developed by the Department of Education, the Office for Child Care Services and other organizations, to help them better understand what they can do to help their child. The Governor’s Budget includes $300,000 to publish this guide in five languages for the parents of over 60,000 children.
I’d like to find out more details about how his federal plan would work.
