Hey, remember when feminists were supposed to cheer Paul Ryan for wanting work-life balance for himself? And then a bunch of feminists (ahem) were soooooo ungrateful and uncharitable and unconvinced that Ryan was interested in work-life balance for anyone but himself? TYPICAL FEMINISTS.
All the mirthless laughter in the universe:
New Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Sunday dismissed Democrats' calls for a paid family leave law as another "federal entitlement," and said his position isn't at odds with recent remarks that he wants to spend weekends with his young family in Wisconsin.No, of course Paul Ryan isn't a hypocrite! He's just like the people he represents! They all want a work-life balance, too! The only difference is that he gets it. A minor detail.
"I don't think people asked me to be Speaker so I can take more money from hard-working taxpayers, so I can create some new federal entitlement," Ryan said during an appearance on Fox News Sunday. "But I think the public wants to have members of Congress that represent them, that are like them."
"Don't you want your member of Congress to be a citizen legislator who lives with you, among you, who has your own kinds of concerns, who wants to spend time with his children on Saturdays and Sundays?"
...But Democrats pounced on him, saying he's a hypocrite for wanting time with his own family while denying mandatory paid time off for other hard-working Americans.
