gee according to this, a family of 4 would be cut off from the NYC childcare subsidy if they make a little over $918/wk. times that by the 52 weeks
in a year and it comes to $47,736/yr.
but in order to qualify for that laon, you'd have to be making over $80,000/yr.
First I want to know just where in the world are the funds coming from for this program, and don't give me the crap that it will be earning money in
the long run because of the interest. The funds have to come from somewhere to the initial loans, are they taking money from the taxpayers now, you
know those $47,736 earners now so that those with income over twice as much as they are making can pay their childcare later??? Are they coming from
just the funds collected from NY City, or are they also coming from the state funds, or national funds???
My next question is this. So, you think that it's a hardship on those $200,000 income earners to pay such outrageous child care costs and at the
same time, you think that those that are in the $47,736-$80,000 can just cut their budget down?? If they can cut their budget down, why can't those
making twice or more a month do the same with a heck of alot less hardship!!!
Maybe I am wrong, maybe the city is just conjuring up the money from somewhere. Maybe the city has it's own program to help those who seem to be
getting left out to dry, but that eligibility calculator does have NYC in it's logo, so it seems doubtful to me!!!
Seems to me this is just another attempt of a gov't entity to pad the pockets of some friends and contributors to their campaigns!
So, now that class of people that are too rich to get any help but too poor to actually afford crap can not only subsidize the childcare (which they
are struggling to afford, or heck, maybe leaving their kids home alone because they can't) not only for the "poor" but also those earning much more
I bet if you check on the cost of childcare in NYC around this time next year, it will have doubled, why not, between the rich and the poor who are
being aided by the government either by loans or by subsidies on the backs of those who are truly struggling to make it, they should have plenty of
customers!! why worry about those who can't afford the insane prices!! They are gonna pay for it weather they want to or not if not for their own
kids, then for someone's elses!! Heck if the government it lucky!! They will decide that the only way up is down and make a move to decrease those
earning so they can live a decent life also!!!
