MARTHA MACCALLUM (ANCHOR): They want their babysitters back." What do you think about that, Will? 

WILL CAIN (FOX & FRIENDS WEEKEND HOST): Here's what I think. I think that crushing our economy on purpose and declining to educate our children and holding them back on their socialization and emotional development is one of the worst policy decisions of the last century. Now, there's some stiff competition here and I'm open to the debate -- obviously Jim Crow segregation laws, Japanese interment, abortion. But, again, sacrificing our children is one of the biggest and worst policy decisions of the past century. And one has to ask, why? Why has that been so readily accepted in the name of quote-unquote science?" It's not science, it is sacrifice, and somebody should be paying the price for this.
