Rep. Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD) opined at a campaign stop recently about how things were better in the olden days when women stayed at home taking care of the kids instead of going to work.
According to the Washington Post, Bartlett broached that topic while talking with the owner of a local automotive company about the problems facing two-income families. Unconcerned with the reporter standing by him, Bartlett implied that the problem only exists because society had pushed women out of their homes and into the labor force.
“This isn’t the politically correct thing to say, but when we drove the mother out of the home into the workplace and replaced her with the television set, that was not a good thing,” Bartlett said, according to the Post.
