Newt pushed for Romneycare and the individual mandate nationwide in 2005.

Republicans don't have a snowballs chance in hell of winning. All GOP candidates have way to much baggage.

Republicans will just buy their way into office. Or lie their way into office or obstruct enough bills to make it look like they are doing it for the GOOD of the country rather than for the good of their SUPER RICH CORPORATE OVERLOARDS.

Might want to tell Pat Caddel and Doug Shoen (two Dem pollsters) that:

When Harry Truman and Lyndon Johnson accepted the reality that they could not effectively govern the nation if they sought re-election to the White House, both men took the moral high ground and decided against running for a new term as president. President Obama is facing a similar reality—and he must reach the same conclusion.

He should abandon his candidacy for re-election in favor of a clear alternative, one capable not only of saving the Democratic Party, but more important, of governing effectively and in a way that preserves the most important of the president's accomplishments. He should step aside for the one candidate who would become, by acclamation, the nominee of the Democratic Party: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Newt is the only GOP candidate with enough background to win. Romney is so plastic nobody is going to vote for him.

Yeah, it is mind boggling how people can only see the title of the article and not reach a biased conclusion on what is arguably a good idea.

..."It is tragic what we do in the poorest neighborhoods, entrapping children in, first of all, child laws, which are truly stupid," said the former House speaker, according to CNN. "Most of these schools ought to get rid of the unionized janitors, have one master janitor and pay local students to take care of the school. The kids would actually do work, they would have cash, they would have pride in the schools, they'd begin the process of rising." ...

Child labor is a "good idea"? What's good about it, RV?
The part where the children are distracted from their
studies by their jobs? The part where children are
taught to devalue education? The part where children
have to choose work over sports, or music, or drama,
or...anything they choose to do?

Isn't childhood short enough? Isn't 18 years old
young enough for life to become all about work?

Da, It's a law the government created therefore it must be wrong.

I don't think kids younger than 16 should be compelled to work unless there is a dire family need,,,

I grew up in a poor area and a lot of the parents didn't work or did side work, but they couldn't wait to send their 14-15yr old kids to a full time job,,,and then start collecting "rent",,,

I was working at 14 so I don't really get it. You want some extra money to spend, you work - doing cleanup or stuff at your school is more community service than work in any case. And here I thought you libtards were all about community service. It would keep the kids more interested in their school, and more proud of themselves. Wow, you are pretty stupid for a liberal aren't you. (note that wasn't a question).

That's too bad. My family was wealthy enough
that I was able to enjoy my childhood.

Back to the subject. Current Child Labor Law says:

The child labor rules that apply to non-agricultural employment depend on the age of the young worker and the kind of job to be performed. Under the FLSA, a youth has to be at least 14 years of age to work, (except in agriculture where the age limit is lower).

In addition to restrictions on hours and jobs for 14- and 15-year-old youth, the Secretary of Labor has found that certain jobs are too hazardous for anyone under 18 years of age to perform. These jobs are listed on the following page.

The basic rules for when and where a youth may work are:

A youth 18 years or older may perform any job, whether hazardous or not, for unlimited hours.

A youth 16 or 17 years old may perform any non-hazardous job for unlimited hours; and

A youth 14 and 15 years old may work outside school hours in various non-manufacturing, non-mining, non-hazardous jobs. They cannot work:

More than 3 hours a day on school days, including Fridays;
More than 18 hours per week in school weeks;
More than 8 hours a day on non-school days;
More than 40 hours per week when school is not in session.
School hours are determined by the hours of the local public school district where the minor resides while employed.

Also, 14- and 15-year-olds may not work before 7:00 a.m., nor after 7:00 p.m., except from June 1 through Labor Day, when their permissible hours are extended to 9:00 p.m. Under special provisions, 14- and 15-year- olds who are enrolled in a federally approved school-administered and school-supervised Work Experience and Career Exploration Program (WECEP) or Work Study Programs (WSP) may be employed during school hours. WECEP participants may also be employed in otherwise prohibited occupations for which an official exception has been authorized by the Department of Labor.

For more detailed information on where 14- and 15-year-olds may work and what kind of jobs they may do, click here.

Gingrich says current Child Labor Law is 'stupid'.

The day I begin to care about your regard for my
intellect is the day I put a gun in my mouth.
