    I hate it when the rich (or in Ann Romney's case, the super-rich) lecture the rest of us about how hard they work.

    All the women I know who are raising families are working extremely hard, most of them trying to earn enough $ to put food on the table and a roof over their kids heads -- and trying to carve out enough time to spend with their kids.

    If it is a struggle to raise 5 kids when you have multi-millions of bucks, think how hard it is to raise 1 or 2 or 3 when you have nothing except your physical self and the education and skills you have managed to acquire.

    Cutting funding for education, medicaid, WIC, and, yes, family planning, shows a total lack of respect for parents who are truly struggling.

    Skepticism of all the elite institutions, not trust, is what required for successful leadership in this era. Digby
