$17,000 a year for childcare on average in California

$17,000 a year for college in Bernie Sander's Vermont

Basically, tax payers would be on the hook for about $297,000 per child for the free babysitting for 5 years at $17,000 a year, free k-12 at $12,000 a year and 4 years of college at university of Vermont is about $17,000 adding up to another $68,000.

Taxpayers on the hook for $153,000 for the extra 5 years of free babysitting and free college to be mainly indoctrinated by liberal professors with a few exception for things like civil or petroleum engineering, nursing and a few select other majors that are useful to the future of the country.

Hell no. If anything, childfree taxpayers should get a tax credit.

Supporting out of control breeding is all part of the pyramid scheme by the government, which will cease to be sustainable as soon as enough labor is automated and masses of human workers are no longer needed.

This is ridiculous. Then why not just give everyone a chunk of money and let them spend it on the things they need. If you have to be a communist at least be a fair about it. I'm tired of supporting other peoples kids while the public schools barely even educate and they brainwash kids with useless PC mush.

At my last job employees got a bank of hours to take for what we needed, it wasn't given for specific purposes and taken from other workers. Dealing with your sick kid? Use your hours, same as the guy who spent his at the beach surfing. Then you work and earn more time. Sometimes we would donate our hours to some co-worker we felt needed it, like a person on sick leave. That was by choice, not taken from us.

Hillary Clinton's free college plan would cost $75 billion dollars per year.

Subsidizing childcare would cost $42 billion dollars per year.

Donald Trumps tax cuts for the richest 1% of Americans costs $2.2 trillion dollars.

Free college and childcare cost- $117 billion
Trump tax cuts for richest 1% cost- $2.2 trillion


What is needed more today in America, free college, and free childcare or tax cuts for the richest 1% of Americans?

Today's republicans not only protect the rich more than children, young people and American families (they don't know the difference between billion and trillion.)

The costs would be much higher. There are about 3.8 million births per year and 19 million between birth and kindergarten age so 42 billion dollars would not go very far that's about $2,000 per child per year for day care costs when the costs are much higher. Of course, not all parents work but a majority do.

The tax cuts have already been implemented. Any time taxes are reduced is good because the politicians are very wasteful and there is alot of corruption. The more they have, the more corrupt they get.

I don't understand why childfree people like me and senior-citizens need to pay for complementary luxury babysitting services and free college so that administrators and lecturers can make a fortune with a huge pension.

The childcare program would only cover children from birth to age 5 in families at or below 200% of the federal poverty level.

Republicans plan to cut Social Security and Medicare to pay for the Trump tax cuts.
