Day care would not cost the state more than paying for the other benefits. What it would do is dump hundreds of thousands of people into the

mothers have very little education, and jobs aren't exactly easy to come by at the moment. They would likely end up as WORKING POORS.
- Kids see their moms less
- Daycare providers make a fortune (somebody check his donors list...but of course we can't track SuperPACs)
- States save a bit most likely
- Welfare recipients turn into working poors
Overall, doesn't sound like it's worth it.
The real reason is that he hopes to further cut benefits while selling it to the people as a "benefit"...just so he can continue to pay for those
tax breaks for the top 1% and his corporate donors. After all, corporate welfare isn't socialsim, right?
And you know what the largest irony is? He says he wants to do all that to give those mothers the "dignity of a job". ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? After
all the "Democrats wage a war on moms" crap, he wants to give those very moms a job because of dignity??? OMFG the GOP has really lost it, no
direction, no ethics, no "for the people", just a ton of childish political games
edit on 15-4-2012 by MrXYZ because: (no reason
there's a good chance that the daycare will cost more than the women would be making at wal mart. and the state will pay for that. then, they will
also consider her transportation costs, clothing allowance, and meals while at work when the figure out her benefits...
taxpayer pays more...
she gets the same allotment of food stamps, her check (which like I said, more than likely doesn't even pay for the child care), new clothes, a car
if needed, or bus ticket, ect.... in reality, she will be given more by the state than if she was home with her kids...
the employer gets a emplyee who isn't gonna gripe about the near minimum wage job that isn't paying the bills, since it doesn't have to, the
but, hey, she's working, that's all some people care about....
as if staying at home and taking care of her kids wasn't work!!!
if it's not work, why does it cost so danged much for childcare to begin with...oh ya, those child care workers work hard!!! those child care
centers deserve every penny they earn!!!
but good luck to all those stay at home, non welfare moms who's hubby's have been laid off and are hoping to find a job to help out with the
budget!!! hiring the welfare mom will come with a tax credit....you won't!! can you take a guess at who they will hire????
