Talk show host Rush Limbaugh warned listeners on his Oct. 21 program about a bill introduced by Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) which “seeks to empower struggling families by directing the federal government to distribute free diapers through daycare centers.”

“Free Diapers, the Diaper Investment and Aid to Promote Economic Recovery Act, the acronym is DIAPER, I’m not making this up” said an incredulous Limbaugh on his show today.

In her announcement introducing the bill, DeLauro said that the bill was inspired by a Diaper Bank charity in Connecticut.

The congresswoman also claimed that “One in five mothers have had to skip an obligation and stay home with their child because of a lack of diapers. Losing out on daycare makes it even harder for parents to put in a full day’s work.”

“Now where did they get this number?!” asked Limbaugh “This is like there were three million homeless for all those years – until there weren’t.”

“‘DeLauro’s legislation would aid families who have toddlers enrolled in daycare, it does not include free diapers for stay-at-home or unemployed moms who don’t use them’ Limbaugh quoted from an article on the bill.

“So you can only get free diapers if you pack your kids off to government-run (day)care,” Limbaugh concluded.

“I mean this is taking indoctrination to steps I never dreamed of! Indoctrinate babies early and often in daycare and you get them in daycare by promising free diapers!” said Limbaugh.
