    As long as its a requirement and there were verifications that went along with it.

    Well, there's 2. Hey 0bserver, can you make a poll that asks if we should get subsidized Ferraris? I mean, if you're advocating for the government to dish out for everyone's wants, I consider it valid.

    As long as they are fully vested in the program fine.
    But if they are going to slack around, nope. Not a penny.

    Its called planning.
    Do you hate people getting jobs and an education or what? Most people who would benefit form this are people who work in large cities in the financial or knowledge sectors daycare might be cheaper where he is or in the Southern U.S. but here daycare is rather expensive.

    A tax credit only differs from a subsidy in it's method of distribution and payment duty cycle.
    It still reduces the cost of a product to the end user.
    I can see part of your point, with the tax credit, the vendor can just raise prices to soak
    up the credit, where as a fixed price just soaks the taxpayer.
    Price fixing also had unseen landmines, supposed the low fixed price drives the operators out of business?

    What a hypocrite. Your entire premise for this thread is to shell out government money to pay for something parents can't afford, yet you say they shouldn't do this because they cannot afford it.

    You libs just like to pick and choose your own damned causes, don't you?

    I imagine the fixed price is only for the parents...not the government.

    Well daycare actually benefits society as a whole as it is better to have a well educated working populace then a uneducated unemployed populace. If you subsidize daycare you get else people collecting unemployment, less welfare, less food stamps because people can work. I guess your against public education aswell.

    No, it's because I don't want to live in the country you envision.
