Marjorie Taylor Greene has always presented herself as an extremely traditional Conservative. And part of her vision is fewer rights for women and more dependence on men. During the Ketanji Brown Jackson hearings, Greene explained, “I’m going to tell you right now what is a woman. We came from Adam’s rib. God created us with his hands. We may be the weaker sex, we are the weaker sex, but we are our partner’s, our husband’s, wife.”
During a recent event in Rome, Georgia, Greene was asked about people who abuse the welfare system. She first complained about COVID relief checks which helped keep Americans’ heads above water during the crisis.
And they’re moving further into those programs of socialism,” she continued. “They want to pay for child care. They want to have a living wage. And these are things that are never going to solve problems actually. No one will have any reason to go to work.”
Greene then said:
“I am opposed to all of that. Yes, welfare does have a purpose and a place and there are times the people have really hard times in life and defintely need it. But we need to have a program in place where they get moved off generational welfare. Why does a woman need to be married if she can be married to the government and keep getting a government check?”
