We need universal, publicly funded childcare [View all]

New York Times: The progressive to-do list is missing a very important idea.

When Bernie Sanders ran for president, he promised to fight for free public college, universal health insurance and a $15 minimum wage. He drew huge crowds, but many Democrats declared his proposals impractical and naÔve.

A few years later, these supposedly pie-in-the-sky proposals are wildly popular among Democrats and have entered the political mainstream as important topics of discussion.

Free public college, health care for all, a living wage: These are all important causes that will improve life for millions. But thereís another proposal that belongs on the progressive to-do list: universal affordable high-quality child care.
