The New Conservatism: Trump Pushes Paid Maternity Leave

On Tuesday, the Trump campaign announced that super-conservative, really truly conservative, so conservative that you’re nuts if you don’t think he’s conservative Republican nominee Donald Trump would be unveiling a new policy proposal: mandatory paid maternity leave.

If you think that it’s rather atypical for a Republican nominee to suggest a massive new government mandate robbing businesses of their income, even though the free market already provides paid maternity for many women (and paternity leave for men), that’s because you’re just remember wrong. It’s all an illusion.
