QUICK CLIP: Joni Ernst doubles down on her sham “paid family leave” plan

Mar 18, 2019

Joni Ernst is doubling down on her “paid family leave” plan — panned as a “sham that would wreck your retirement” — even as one of her own GOP colleagues came out against the proposal as a “raid” on Social Security.

WHO-DM reported on Friday that Ernst was “hearing the criticism about a paid leave act she introduced this week, but she says still believes in it.”

Ernst criticized “others that would just simply rather throw a tax out there,” while acknowledging the bill “isn’t perfect.” Ernst is right– possibly destroying Social Security as we know it isn’t what we’d call “perfect.”
