Do you see this as part of a "If you don't work at a government assigned job, you don't get benefits" program? Basically, it would be an economic coercion plan, if I understand you.
Or, would it be a "The government will pay you so much for providing day care, that you will choose that over being on welfare" program?
We have the money for new billion dollar aircraft, but can't afford a daycare center. We can kill...but never nurture. (sigh)
I'm so bloody tired of Alcohol bills for overseas Congressional junkets running HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of dollars ..just so they could get drunk on our dime....but we can't afford Headstart for the children (and parents, that frees up to work as a side benefit).
And all of this to provide education? Does history teach us nothing? Spending on education has gone up to incredible levels. My school district spends over $10,000 a year per pupil in K-12 alone, and this fall they will raise local taxes again.
