President Biden says:
Nearly 2 million women in our country have been locked out of the workforce because they have to care for a child or an elderly relative at home.
My Build Back Better Act will make caregiving accessible and affordable and help them get back to work.

So let me get this straight. My wife, who stays at home to care for our kids — because she wants to, not because she “has to” — is “locked out of the workforce” and, ideally, would “get back to work.” To remedy this, the federal government intends to raise my taxes in order to pay other people to look after my children — which, unlike my wife’s efforts with her own children, would count as “work.”
If this is to be the model, why not just send my wife a check directly? Could it be, perhaps, that Biden thinks that the government would do a better job?
