Go smoke some more BC Bud, dude. You're pushing an inversion of reality:

"Don't give people 25 bucks a week to blow on beer and popcorn," Reid said during a panel discussion on CBC News: Sunday. "Give them child-care spaces that work. Stephen Harper's plan has nothing to do with child care."
The Conservative on the panel called the comment "an insult," and said it proves that the Liberals don't trust families to make their own choices about what's best for their children.
So let's recap. Conservatives wanted to give families a payment and let them decide how to spend it on child care. Liberals reject that notion and want to spend that money on liberal controlled daycare centers because they don't trust parents to know what is best for their children.
