Fox News anchors lament that 40% of household breadwinners are female,

    ...and that it's leading to the destruction of the U.S.

    Can we please stop pretending Conservatives aren't evil, now?

      A few assumptions:
      With known disparity between male and female incomes, families with the primary breadwinner being female are generally going to earn less.

      Understanding that most single parent families have a female parent, a great many of those female breadwinners will be single parents.  Far more so than male.

      Again, as many female breadwinners will be single parents, it also means many "broken" families.

      All are distressing, all are harmful to the US and all are harmful to children, but what does any of them have to do with conservatives?

      Let the women work, its about time men took on the household chores, take the children to school, do an hours housework and pretend they haven't stopped all day while drinking coffee and chatting on line.

    That is a hoot! Thanks for posting. RFLMAO.
    For a "slightly" different take on the study, I read the writeup from Pew itself.
    In fact, many of the actual findings contradict the dire findings of his middle aged
    male panel

    One of my favorite (of many) findings:
    "The total family income is higher when the mother, not the father, is the primary breadwinner. In 2011, the median family income was nearly $80,000 for couples in which wife is the primary breadwinner, about $2,000 more than it was for couples in which husband is the primary breadwinner, and $10,000 more than for couples in which spouses’ income is the same."

    Kudos to Fox News "anchorettes" Greta Van Susteren and Megyn Kelly for
    calling out their male colleagues.
    Intelligent signs of life on Fox. In skirts, natch...
