Please help me to pass the Helping Working Families Afford Child Care Act. Senate should pass this act because it will make childcare more affordable for parents, parents will be able to get back into the workforce and children will receive skills they will use the rest of their lives.

If the senate passes S.661 this will greatly reduce the issue of high child care prices as well as the latent issues that go along with it. This act will make childcare much more affordable for parents because they won’t have to spend as much of their income on childcare bills. This will greatly help the middle to lower class, currently spending up to 1/3 of their income on child care services a year. Every child deserves child care that is high quality, where skills and good manners are promoted. This will also help to decrease the number of families currently falling below the poverty line. In order for this policy to be implemented, the government would need to check into each family’s background/history. This would determine how large a grant/scholarship to provide to each family depending on the number of children they have and their ability to pay for childcare.

Overall implementing this act would not be a difficult task. Besides initially checking in on families, all that would be required is for the government to determine the amount of each subsidy for each family. Even though this process may at first seem complicated as time goes on it will become more efficient, helping the country as a whole. Economically this will greatly benefit parents paying exuberant amounts of money for childcare. That is the main manifest outcome. As for a latent outcome the economy will improve greatly since families will then be able to invest in other markets. A social latent outcome of approving this act would result in children learning at younger ages how to behave respectfully as well as interact with their peers. To get involved with this act people can donate their time and money to free child care systems so that these daycares are able to continue functioning. In conclusion, based on the economic reasoning that a large number of the lower and middle income class are having a hard time affording child care and because an average of those below the poverty line spend 1/3rd of their income on child care, coupled with the social benefits children receive from attending quality childcare, Senate should pass S.661 (Helping Working Families Afford Child Care Act).

With your help we can bring attention to the Helping Working Families Afford Child Care Act and help senate see how implementing this act will greatly help America.
