No, It Should Not Be Subsidized
For this reason, essentially, I opposed the idea of subsidizing it. I am not necessarily opposed to any and all government intervention with respect to child welfare, because that is somewhat unavoidable. I might even be more open to discussing some way for the government to provide outlays for the entire service rather than shuffle out cash directly to people for this.
