In an interview yesterday with political giant “Access Hollywood”, Ann Romney announced the causes she would ‘champion’ as First Lady.
“Aspiring first lady Ann Romney said she would bring national attention to two diseases she has personally battled – multiple sclerosis and breast cancer – should her husband win the White House.”
I mean that’s nice and all, but we have nationally funded research organizations and other groups working on those. What about the people who don’t have that specific cancer and that specific disease? No health care for them? No concern?
Romney also told Access that she would champion the plight of at-risk children. “There are so many kids in this country right now that are getting left behind. We have to let all of them know they are special, they’re loved and they’re unique,” she said.
No. They do not need to know that they are “special” or “loved”. They need to know that they will have lunch tomorrow, they need to know that if they get hurt, a doctor will be able to treat them. They need to know that when they grow up, they won’t have to “borrow money from their parents” to go to college - that when they grow up, they can get a job, that they can do anything. The underprivileged kids of America do NOT need your PITY, Ann Romney. They need your HELP. And your husband is not going to give them anything, not an inch - no tax beaks for their parents so they could maybe go on vacation, no healthcare if they were born with a disease (like MS perhaps?). In short, he’s going to take away their hope, which is the only thing they have - aside from being “unique” and “loved”.
(Although, I do like the pun/irony of her saying the kids are “getting left behind” after her party passed the “No Child Left Behind” a/k/a school ruining law. Nice one.)
