This article is very interesting about the labor market 'punishments' that mothers have to make in order to raise a family.
The article states that "Giving parents here a full year of leave for each child would cost about $25 billion a year, or less than 0.2 percent of gross domestic product."
Do you think that is a better plan and then we could eliminate some WIC, food stamps, and PA?

I don't think our country could budget wisely enough to make that work. I also don't see that eliminating PA or WIC, for it's only one year. It would be nice, but I don't see it ever happening here. Our government doesn't seem to know what the hell it's doing lately. :(
