You're acting like these wefare mommas are thinking beyond dinner time. The PR whom was interviewed on 69, I wonder how much of her child care SHE pays for or the sperm donor father. Exactly how much does the government contribute? If childcare is more then her rent ( assuming she pays for that or is that on the governments dime too) why did she have 2 children? She couldn't afford to work and provide daycare for one let alone two.
If you can't afford them DON'T HAVE THEM.

When I saw that interview I had those thoughts exactly. That's how they are though, act like they are the ones paying for it, knowing damn well she gets title 20. Truth is, she doesn't pay a red cent to her childcare.

Look at all the title 20 daycares in Allentown. You can walk one block and see 5 of them. Stop the title 20, and stop giving these people money to start up home daycares. This is why the governor was forced to make such dramatic changes. Cutting out general assistance.

Allentown needs more owner occupied properties and less slum lords-tenants. If this does'nt change neither will Allentown. Until then....more gruel for everybody

How is that going to happen when people have no money and/or jobs? This country is in rougher times then it looks. Tax the rich and spread the wealth. Vote Obama or this country is dead.

Maybe you should stop worrying about child care and start worrying about the homicide just up the street from you this morning, eh Ward Rat ?
