Is this when the United States starts figuring out that no one thinks they are the greatest country on Earth?
“President Barack Obama said Monday that the United States should join the rest of the industrialized world and offer paid leave for mothers of newborns.
“Many women can’t even get a paid day off to give birth — now that’s a pretty low bar,” Obama said at the White House Summit on Working Families. “That, we should be able to take care of.”
“The president is talking about paid maternity in the midst of a midterm election campaign focused on women voters, raising questions about how he would fund such a system. ‘
“If France can figure this out, we can figure this out,” Obama said.”
