Democrat Representatives Introduce Entitlement for Child Care Assistance


Representative Jim McDermott (D-WA), along with Reps. George Miller (D-CA), Pete Stark (D-CA), John Lewis (D-GA) and Gwen Moore (D-WI).) introduced  the “Ensuring Child Care for Working Families Act of 2012,” (HR 5188) stating, “In these difficult economic times, too many families are forced to find ways to pay for child care assistance while they struggle to put food on the table and pay their rent.  Child care assistance enables us to have a stable work force, with fewer absences and more productivity. And research shows that quality child care gives children the chance to learn and develop skills they need to succeed in school and in life.”
