Does Heritage Miss Their Mommies?

In a post today titled "Mothers' Intuition Trumps Feminist Ideology," Collette Capara at the Heritage Foundation blog concluded "Taxpayers and policymakers should work to promote policies that would enable moms to make the choice to stay at home and care for their children."

Interestingly, there used to be just such a program to help mothers stay at home and care for their children.  That program was Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC).  The reason AFDC no longer exists is because organizations like the Heritage Foundation insisted that these mothers should work rather than raise their children.
