Romney Said Welfare Moms Need "Dignity of Work"

Mitt Romney last week declared that "all moms are working moms," but the Boston Globe notes "he insisted as recently as January that women on welfare need to get jobs, even if they have young children."

Said Romney: "Even if you have a child two years of age, you need to go to work. And people said, 'Well that's heartless,' and I said 'No, no, I'm willing to spend more giving daycare to allow those parents to go back to work. It'll cost the state more providing that daycare, but I want the individuals to have the dignity of work.'"
