Sam Brownback: Promoting Marriage

Filed under: Election 2008,Family,Sam Brownback — Psycheout @ 11:35 am

Sam Brownback keeps on saying the things I like to hear:

DES MOINES, April 6 U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kansas, said in Des Moines, Iowa, that welfare reform should encourage low-income people to marry.


“One of the things we need to do is drive up the number of people who get married,” the Republican presidential hopeful said as he chatted with attendees at the Iowa Prayer Breakfast, the Des Moines (Iowa) Register reported Friday. Brownback said current welfare recipients stand to lose 88 percent of their aid by getting married.

That is so stupid.  And get rid of the idiotic Marriage Penalty too.

“People act economically rational,” he said. “They are just not going to do that.” Brownback promoted a marriage development account program he said Congress started two years ago.

The marriage development account program has been mentioned in other posts as well: Sam Brownback: “Pro-life, Whole Life” and Sam Brownback in Iowa.

As time goes on, Brownback’s family-friendly message will appeal to conservatives and his stock will rise. Will it happen in time?

  2. I was at the Iowa Prayer Breakfast, and Senator Brownback was very warmly received. There were lot of influential Conservatives in attendance, many of whom were excited about the Brownback campaign.

    There is clearly a lot of frustration with the conservative credentials of other leading candidates in the GOP field.
