Charles Krauthammer criticized Donald Trump's proposal for new childcare subsidies, saying the Republican candidate was trying to "out-Democrat the Democrats."
The proposed subsidies would include tax deductions, rebates for lower-income households and new tax-preferred savings accounts, as well as a new promise of paid maternity leave for workers who don't now have it.
"I think this raises the question of how many Democratic parties does the country need," Krauthammer said.
Paid Family Leave
Trump: Trump doesn't offer leave for fathers, but his maternity leave plan would guarantee six weeks of paid maternity leave in the form of unemployment insurance, which is capped at a percentage of income in many states.
Clinton: Clinton's plan guarantees 12 weeks of paid family leave - for mothers and fathers with at least two-thirds of their salary. It would be paid for by raising taxes on the wealthy.

What's surprising? He's adopted some of the Clinton platform to court her voters. Also not surprising is that yesterday he lied and said that Clinton had no child care plan despite the fact that it's been on her website apparently for more than a year. Also not much of a shock is that her plan is more detailed.
A final non-shocker is that Fox News correspondent Carl Cameron repeated the Trump lie saying that Trump, "has laid out his child care policies before Hillary Clinton has done anything in serious detail"
I'm surprised you're surprised!

But when you eventually get mandated by the government via taxes, then it isn't really helping families with kids.
It's being forced to give money to government so they can determine what families with kids get the money that they took from you.
