Child-care funds go unused in county

This article is a perfect example of the inefficiency of government, and the very reasons why it fails so miserably to accomplish what it intends. In the meantime, your money, and mine, is wasted in the fraud admitted in the article, while those in need can't get all the paperwork done to the satisfaction of government buerocrats, and aid agencies themelves can't figure out what the requirements actually are. Given the current fiscal issues, isn't it long past time to simplify these issues, to cross connect and computerize the qualifying process for various forms of aid, so that some poor person seeking aid in difficult times has to go through whatever hoops are required only once? Shouldn't qualifying for food stamps show whether or not a recipient has children who are eligible for the kinds of aid talked about in this article? Shouldn't qualifying for income assistance show whether or not one is impoverished?

If a child is molested, as too many are in child care facilities, who is ultimately liable for paying damages, if the child care provider is found guilty, and how much has been paid out so far in lawsuits and settlements?
By the way, nothing says, "you're second rate in my life" more than dropping off a pre-schooler in child care all day.
Does a helluva job on their self-esteem that our police force can have fun with for many years.

Is it really the government's bureaucracy at fault, or the potential recipients' lack of willingness to provide adequate information to qualify?
Birth certificates and receipts ain't exactly rocket science.
One goes through greater scrutiny in a job interview.

I have a 1 year old foster kid and they (the system) has made it next to impossible to find affordable daycare for him. They will only fund his daycare if I'm blood related, but I'm not. Daycare far exceeds the funds that the state provides. I work full-time and have two kids of my own. I would love to continue to care for him, but it is becoming next to impossible. He is currently on 4 waiting list in Long Beach for daycare.

If you can't afford to take care of them, don't have them.
