Subsidizing daycare is cost effective. It cost far less than the alternative - having one parent stay home and having the family qualify for far more dollars in benefits than the daycare subsidy.
Say mommy and daddy work for minimum wage and get $100 per week of daycare assistance. Daycare subsidy is cut and mommy has to quit to take care of junior. Family income is halved. The household now qualifies for food stamps, rental assistance, medicaid and maybe WIC - and I guarantee those will cost more than $400 a month.

This article made me extremely thankful that I'm married - and chose to be a stay at home mom.
