Paul Ryan Demands to be a Parent, Too

Ellen Bravo says it so well:

“On the one hand, we’re delighted to see a male elected official talk about spending time with children,” said Ellen Bravo, executive director of Family Values @ Work, a coalition in 21 states working for family-friendly policies. “This is just what we want and we know about the double standard. Female candidates are being asked how will they manage the job and family. It’s great to see [Paul Ryan address] that.”

On the other hand, she said, “it’s hard to stomach the hypocrisy of someone demanding family time for himself and blocking it for the American people.”


Paul Ryan demands to be a parent, too – The Washington Post Paul Ryan said he’ll run for Speaker if, among other things, he still gets family time. Lots of workers would like that. Will it ever happen?
