Ivanka @ RNC: Dad will "make quality child care affordable and accessible for all." OOOPS!



President Donald Trump said just last month in a speech before Congress that he’d like to work toward affordable and accessible child care.

His daughter Ivanka told an audience this summer at the Republican National Convention that, if elected, Trump would “focus on making quality child care affordable and accessible for all.” She’s been evangelizing for a policy to help parents balance work and kids ever since, part of her campaign to market herself as a champion of #WomenWhoWork.

Yet on Thursday, the Trump administration sent Congress a proposed budget that cuts funding for public school programs that offer working parents, particularly low-income families, access to affordable child care.

As part of a $9 billion cut to the Department of Education, Trump’s budget would eliminate funding for 21st Century Community Learning Centers. Created in 1994 and costing about $1.1 billion annually, the centers provide before-school, after-school and summer programs for 1.6 million low-income children, primarily those of color, across the country.

is my brother *sigh*
Of course the biggest problem is that people like my brother would rather be told what to think and what to believe because the idea of having to do that for themselves is terrifying.

21. first lady

Ivanka is fighting for help with affordable childcare for WEALTHY people. Help paying their nannies. When she is following her Daddy (is it my imagination or is he getting even UGLIER?) dispensing his medications someone has to babysit her children, so SHE needs financial help. I am starting to think she is as stupid as he is. I am certain Beavis and Butthead are dumb like Daddy.

5. Jesus.

Richard Nixon vetoed government funded child care because he thought by doing so women would stay home with their kids.

Now whether or not a woman should stay home is one discussion. The financial realities of life is another. Yeah, if men earned a whole lot more there would be somewhat more women staying home. But some women really like their jobs, some women are not crazy about being home all day with young children, and some women do not have a husband (or wife in this truly wonderful era of same-sex marriage) around to support them and the kids.

In the late 1960's I was a telephone operator. This was back when only women were hired for that job. I'd say about half of us were single, the other half married, and most of the married women had children. Actually some of them were single, as in divorced, women with kids. And even the ones with husbands on site, the husbands weren't earning very much money. I wish I could recall the statistic quoted me, but keep in mind this was nearly 50 years ago, but even the ones with husbands were often earning more than their spouses. So the reality is that for a very long time, as in just about forever, women have needed to work to support themselves and their families. Genuine child care should be a lot like health care for all. It's funded. Period. You use what you need. If you are happy staying home, then great. If you're healthy, great. But if you work outside the home, if you get sick, these things are taken care of.

What was truly great about working for Ma Bell back then was that as an operator, it was shift work, and there was an amazing variety of shifts available, and usually a woman could get one that would work for her. Plus the pay was decent, especially for a woman. And the benefits were likewise decent.

12. "Now whether or not a woman should stay home is one discussion."

In what universe? I'd be willing to discuss whether one PARENT should stay home. But I'd like to know where the discussion is only about whether the woman should stay home.

22. Work

I went to work in 1967. My husband was in the Air Force, and we had 3 kids. His paycheck was not great, so I worked to help with expenses. Most of the women were married, too, with families that I worked with. Some single girls. In MY world, women HAD to work.

14. Ivanka got all pissy and cut short a Cosmo interview

when the reporter asked tough questions about her dad's record vs. his claims during the campaign last summer:
https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2016/09/15/politics/ivanka-trump-cosmo-interview/index.html

...."Ivanka) Trump criticized the interviewer for having "a lot of negativity" in her questions.

..... the candidate's daughter bristled when interviewer Prachi Gupta asked, "In 2004, Donald Trump said that pregnancy is an inconvenient thing for a business. It's surprising to see this policy from him today. Can you talk a little about those comments, and perhaps what has changed?"

"So I think that you have a lot of negativity in these questions," Ivanka Trump said, according to Cosmopolitan's transcript. "So I don't know how useful it is to spend too much time with you on this, if you're going to make a comment like that."

She said the question was "an unfair characterization of his track record and his support of professional women."

47. She will tell you that before school, after school, and summer programs aren't "child care"...

so they won't count. Especially since the GOP is happy to get rid of child labor laws, and make the little criminals pay for the charitable gift of lower-class education and a free lunch by working before and after "learning time" until their parents can pick them up.

Child care is having to hire a babysitter, nanny, or maybe sending your baby or toddler to a church/synagogue pre-school while the parents and older kids go about their day making money. It's an investment to keep the parents working before the child is old enough to follow orders and join the workforce itself.
And if there's too many workers idle around, who cares what happens to the kids? With forced birth policies, there will always be an excess of labor to chose from or dispose of.

GOP plan for the working class in a nutshell.
