All in the Family
IN WASHINGTON today, “family policy” is a term unburdened by any specific meaning. Want to help the poor? Want to cut taxes? Want to support working women? Want children to pray in school? If you do, or do not, then you want “family policy.” Similarly, “the family” and “family values,” while frequently invoked, usually amount to little more than rhetorical Trojan Horses, intended to camouflage any number of special interests and hidden agendas.
