January 25, 2010; CNN | As news about Obama’s intention to implement a freeze on certain areas of domestic spending is being unveiled, so is his proposal—made at the recommendation of his Middle Class Task Force—to increase child care subsidies through a doubling of the child care tax credit for middle class families and through a $1.6 billion expansion of a voucher program for lower income families. If this confusion of proposals was intended to impress anyone with its central thesis, it has probably not done its job.—Ruth McCambridge

    As an advocate for increased support for child care funding, I’m very confused about this statement. I am not confused by the message that there is unlimited spending for war and a dearth of funds to support families in the US. STOP THE WAR SPENDING WHICH IS IN LARGE PART CORPORATE SPENDING.
