Should members of Congress be allowed to bring their babies to Capitol Hill? | The Tylt
Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) made history by becoming the first woman to give birth while serving in the Senate, and she lobbied to change the Senate rules to allow her to bring her baby with her to the Senate floor. Duckworth argued the old rules were antiquated and unfair to new mothers. But others say Capitol Hill is no place for a newborn baby, and member of Congress should leave their kids at home. What do you think? 👶🏻

Bryan, Abigail and I couldn’t be happier to welcome little Maile Pearl as the newest addition to our family and we’re deeply honored that our good friend Senator Akaka was able to bless her name for us—his help in naming both of our daughters means he will always be with us. https://t.co/KXyNf65KxA— Tammy Duckworth (@SenDuckworth) April 9, 2018
I'm more of a Liberal I guess but put the kids in daycare like everyone else. The workplace isn't a place for kids.— Eric Gesell (@ericg052181) April 9, 2018
