Give the man credit: he's standing up for cradle-to-grave government support, at least for women. The focus on how women benefit from cradle-to-grave government wardship is an interesting one.
To some degree this is a practical fact of the kind of welfare state we've put together. We tend to make transfer payments to the poor and the old. Women make up the bulk of the one category because they tend to be the child-rearing parent in divorced families. They make up the bulk of the other category because they live substantially longer.
Thus the split is an organic one, sort of: it grows naturally out of supporting the poor and the old through government transfer payments. The Obama administration is just doubling down on it, and trying to think of many ways to craft additional woman-specific payments and benefits.
Still, time was that accusing someone of being in favor of "cradle-to-grave" government involvement in our lives was a pretty serious charge. Apparently the Obama administration thinks that, at least for women, the time has come to embrace it.
