Okay, so my neighbor asked if I would sign an online petition to help Kentuckians keep their 4C's. Can someone explain to me exactly what it is for or what it does to help kids?

It is the probram that pays for low income parents and families to put their children in daycare while they work. Without the program alot more people will not be able to work. No one can afford what daycares charge especially peple who are struggling in the first place. Its an excellent program and the government has taken away something very important to alot of people, good care for their children while they work to try and make ends meet. Sad.

Thank You. It seems to be a program worthy of help. I didn't mean to sound as if I wouldn't support it, I just wasn't familiar with it. I would rather see something else be cut than this. Thanks for the info.:)

your research, don't listen to this guy. You have be working or in school get 4c's. and they don't cover whole bill for daycare, they pay certain amount every week per child. parent(s) are responsible for coming up with the rest. And the money from the can't just go to any baby sitter, if the person is sitter they have take classes and be lisenced by the state to care for children, they also pay taxes on the money they make while baby sitting. This is really great program, it allows a lot of parents to work. We need to keep it.

Many, many years ago 4Cs helped ensure I had child care so I could finish high school. I received their assistance when I had my first job too. I don't think it could have become the productive member of society I am now without that assistance early on.

I think the cuts will make every female think twice about having a baby she can't afford. I know a few that work part-time, get 4-Cs and still get a whopping IRS return. Most get enough unearned income (or whatever it's called) to buy a vehicle!
One popular daycare in Bardstown only has two cash paying parents...That's scary.
Thanks Governor Brashear!

They breed like rabbits because they know they'll get all kinds of welfare. It's an honor for them to have 3 kids before they turn 20.

This isn't always true. I had a baby at 20 old and was no way able to support child and myself, but I stepped up to the plate, got a good job and now I don't receive any welfare at all. However, if it weren't 4c's (which i only had for a month) i never would have been able to even start working because for the first few weeks i couldnt afford child care. i still paid all but $30/wk for my childcare too. dont judge, SOME single parents actually take care of business.

Most of these parents are bums, so sorry Sharpie, but they ruined it for you. Get married, then have babies, and stop complaining. It is free money to you, and so you complain about how much is free? Bum. And when you get free from others, you get judged. That is fair. Use your "earned" income tax return and the premiums. Take your free money and pay your bills, oh wait, that would take away from your car payments, vacations and other personal luxury items. Bums.

Gosh, I've realized that you just can't escape Death, Taxes and the fact that you come across as a cold, assuming, rude and yes, "judgmental" prick or bitch. There is a reason that it is easier for a camel to cross through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to cross through the gates of Heaven. Compassion and charity are not signs of weakness. If you are the type to believe in God, then you know that He favors the virtuous. If you don't give a shit about religion, then you maybe you've heard that no man stands taller than when he leans over to help a brother in need? Or it could be all that doesn't mean jackshit about any of that and you could just really be the bitch or prick that you sound like? Have a great day:)

Listen, I was able to get 4Cs after my wife passed away. There was no way I could afford to send our children to daycare without two incomes. I was able to keep working in order to support our children. Don't knock it unless you've been in my shoes. I didn't abuse it in any way. I needed help. Once my wife died of cancer, then everything fell on my shoulders. I'm glad I was able to get a little help otherwise I would be on welfare today because I couldn't have afforded it.
