TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Well, like most of the Democratic Party's 2020 candidates, [Sen.] Elizabeth Warren is running fast to position herself at the left end of the Democratic spectrum. That's a position she comfortably held for years until the party itself went insane and that left Warren looking dangerously moderate. So yesterday, Warren unveiled a plan for a universal state-run taxpayer-funded day care scheme in the United States. Warren wants 12 million kids to participate in this day care plan. That would be 60 percent of all children under five in America. In a speech shortly before revealing her plan Warren said universal day care, quote, "is about what each of our children is entitled to. Not just the children of the wealthy, not just the children of the well connected, but every one of our children is entitled to good child care." Let's take this seriously. Warren has it exactly backward. Children are not entitled to government day care. What children are entitled to is love from their own parents.
The American family has been crushed by the changing American economy, and nobody wants to admit it. But 15 years ago, Elizabeth Warren did admit it and she was deeply troubled by it. Good for her. That was the old Elizabeth Warren. Now Warren wants to be president, so she's gone corporate. That's where the money is. The new Elizabeth Warren argues that the American dream is not raising your own children. The American dream is outsourcing their upbringing to government caretakers while their parents scurry back to work as good little servants of globalized market capitalism. The need from our government day care specialists will no doubt be justified, be used to justify more immigration, and so the cycle, as you can see, is complete. The Democratic Party started by outsourcing manufacturing -- you remember that. Then they outsourced farm labor and yard work. And now they decided to outsource parenting. Raising your own kids, Elizabeth Warren is telling us, is a job Americans just won't do. Huh.
