Nancy Pelosi likes to think she’s there to help relieve people of their burdens, even if those burdens are their children:

Pelosi spoke about her recently announced “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” on Weekend Edition Sunday, an agenda that includes equal pay for women, an increase in the minimum wage, universal pre-school and access to child care for women who work.

“The child care issue probably has to be done in steps,” Pelosi told NPR host Susan Stamberg. “But when children are learning, parents can be learning.”

“And when the children are in preschool, that frees parents to earn without carrying the burden of the child care,” she said.

Beyond words.
