Quote – Representative Tom DeLay (R-TX)

[The Democratic Party] don't get that the ability of American businesses to create jobs is directly related to the burden government places on their backs. They don't get that mandating family and medical leave is just one more burden added…. Mandating that business pick up the tab for these benefits allows them to advance their agendas without spending Federal dollars.

Representative Tom DeLay (R-TX) votes to sustain President H.W Bush’s second veto of the Family Medical Leave Act. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/F?r102:6:./temp/~r102AhwnX3:e47568:
