The way to get around government involvement is to increase the child care tax credit, which I support, but I don't think the credit should be 100% of all expenses. I *think* right now it is 35% of your childcare expenses, with a maximum of 3k for one child or 6k for two or more. There are phase outs too, if you make too much, which I guess is okay.

I posted this on another thread and thought it was worth repeating and so I'll never have to type it again...

One time me and a date were leaving a nightclub inside the Lowe's Anatole in Dallas called Mistral's, we were by ourselves on the second floor in a huge room when I started walking on my hands, I lost the car keys and by the time we made it down a long hall and to the other side of this huge hotel, then went back to look I could never find them, so we hailed a cab (first time for both of us), we decided to go over to the infamous Starck Club and catch a ride with some friends who had gone there instead, well on our way the cab driver chick failed to yield to a emergency vehicle and we almost crashed big time, we were also going the long way and I mentioned that and she belligerently said "I don't care, the meter isn't running anyway", so we finally made it and when she got there she run up over the curb, opened the door and puked!

That was my first and last cab ride lol

Top of the morning, all! Humping shall now officially commence.

Colonel, thank you. Ditto. However, I think of myself as a moderate. Sublime, perhaps I'll revisit the topic later today. Thanks, Perf.

Thank you, Lady C and Lady R. <3

Thank you Lady J and Lady R. I'm full for the day. I do believe I read somewhere that today is FlowerChild's birthday. If so, I do want to wish her a gloriously happy day and many, many more.

That's okay, Lady J. I doubt we'll see eye to eye on the issue. You're mildly liberal self is still lovely, in my eyes.:p

I support expanding the tax credit to cover maybe 50 or 60% of childcare expenses, because in that manner folks still have some skin in the game and can make efficient childcare decisions. If the gov picks up the whole tab, you'll have stay at homes who don't really need to work to live comfortably taking advantage of it or folks who have other child care options taking advantage of it. I'm all for helping folks out in need, but I'm not so much for helping folks out when it comes to paying for "wouldn't it be nice."

I realize this doesn't give the person whose grandma is in jail a free ride or whatever when it comes to childcare, but I think a 50 to 60 percent subsidy is fairly generous and generally frown upon free rides because of the poor decision making incentives it generates.

If I had my way, I'd also expand the child care tax credit for folks who choose to get an education or job training and need child care while they are in school. Between the two, I'm far more in favor of programs that provide greater opportunity for social mobility as opposed to programs that essentially just pay to warehouse, care, and maintain people in poverty or near poverty.
