Big Brother Knows (Parenting) Best

The U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to debate two bills that could give the federal government unprecedented control over the way parents raise their children – even providing funds for state workers to come into homes and screen babies for emotional and developmental problems.

The Pre-K Act (HR 3289) and the Education Begins at Home Act (HR 2343) are two bills geared toward military and families who fall below state poverty lines. The measures are said to be a way to prevent child abuse, close the achievement gap in education between poor and minority infants versus middle-class children and evaluate babies younger than 5 for medical conditions.- WND
Does the government really have this much trust in their people?


  1. America's government was constructed based on the belief that the American people are too uneducated to truly govern themselves. That's why we elect educated folk to govern us and make sure we don't do anything TOO stupid.
