Diaper assistance: Is that a joke?

I had to smile when I read the article “Bill would start first diaper assistance program in U.S.” (Page A3, Aug. 2), on providing diaper assistance for families on welfare. Are cloth diapers no longer being made? I reared two boys and never used a disposable diaper. I used cloth diapers and washed them and used them over and over again. That was the least expensive way to go. Of course, I was not on welfare. It is time the taxpayers got a break!
