Clinton Discusses Child Care Costs in Louisville, Kentucky (5/10/16)

Via Louisville Courier-Journal:
Saying that for some families, child care costs more than rent, Hillary Clinton on a visit to Louisville on Tuesday announced a plan to make child care more affordable for working parents.
Speaking to a crowd gathered at the Family Health Centers in Louisville, the Democratic candidate for president said no family should have to pay more than 10 percent of its income for child care.

  1. there are creative ways to provide affordable childcare, and of course universal pre-school is at the top of that list. But her ideas for inner city changes, like the urban hiking trails and the multi-purpose building complexes, that allow for before and after-school programs and weekend workshops, also allow for smaller children care.

    And given there are grandparents who don't get enough in retirement to pay for extras and actually love babies, and that those are also in the category of jobs that can't be outsourced, it's all in the big picture, the one that thrills me when I think of what she'll come up when she's got the top job. It'll be fun, that much I know, it'll be village like and give love a chance.

    She is against waste, our square Methodist girl-wonk-candidiate, and that's against wasting the expertise of retired and under-employed Americans who can teach, such things as lamp fixing and toilet fixing workshops et al, and know how to play with babies.
