The Donald’s latest bribe to a particular constituency comes in his “Child Care Plan” which he officially proposed yesterday. Females are his target. The most controversial aspect of this proposal is the federal government guarantee that every new mother receive 6 weeks paid maternity leave. The first question which arises is, “Who will pay for this new perk?’
Trump claims that nobody will have to pay for this as it will be instituted in such a way that it will cost companies no more than their present insurance. If you believe that, I have a bridge I would like to sell you.
I heard Trump’s daughter promoting this “Plan” today and it sounded like a marketing campaign from the Left. One of the terms she used was “Wage disparity.”
“We must adjust our laws to take into account, ‘the new American family’ . . . The number of single mothers has doubled in the last 30 years”
She liberally avoided the fact that this means that illegitimacy has doubled in this period of time. She went so far as to say Trump’s plan was more complete than Hillary’s.
With almost every announcement he makes, this man proves himself to be a New York Liberal. Does anyone still believe otherwise? Yet one constantly hears that we must vote for Trump in order to beat Hillary. This troupe is shouted from the roof tops every time someone points out some new leftward move by the Donald. The best part of this liberal plan is that it is proposing only half of what Hillary is proposing which is 12 weeks paid leave…but give Donald time. He’ll get there.
I understand Hillary is a very bad candidate, but I truly wonder how many of Trump’s supporters have lost touch with reality. With this in mind, I would like to know, how far they would actually go to beat Hillary. Which of the below mentioned candidates would they vote for were he running against Hillary today?
4. John Kerry
5. Jerry Brown
6. Bernie Sanders
I truly am curious.
Ivanka went on:
The fourth part of my father’s plan will add incentives for employers to provide child care at the workplace. Breakdowns in child-care networks cause employee absences that cost U.S. businesses billions each year. On-site child-care centers help resolve avoidable employee absenteeism, in addition to saving time and helping companies retain valued staff.
Finally, under the Trump plan, the federal government will guarantee, for the first time, six weeks of paid maternity leave. This will be done by amending the existing unemployment insurance that companies are required to carry. The enhancement will triple the average paid leave that new mothers receive, and it will do so without raising taxes.
At the heart of this policy is the belief that every parent should have the freedom to make the best decisions for his or her family. My father is prepared to chart a new course that promotes strong families and celebrates their individual needs; one that honors, respects and empowers both working and stay-at-home mothers and caregivers. Together, we will take a stand and enable the American family and the modern workforce to thrive.
So, if according to Ivanka, Trump’s plan will promote strong families, then why on a Trump-produced fact sheet for Trump’s New Child Care Plan does it state:
An analysis of a similar program in California has shown that unmarried, non-white, and non-college-educated mothers receive the most benefit. The Trump plan for paid maternity leave will advance the interests of disadvantaged mothers without raising taxes.
So…Trump proposes a wall to forward the interests of Americans but internally he’s promoting the same policies which have caused the ballooning of illegitimacy rates across the country and at the same time is expanding the kind of welfare stat that tends to attract the illegal aliens in the first place.
Here’s the wording of Trump’s official proposal from his web site.
PROPOSAL: The Trump plan will guarantee six weeks of paid maternity leave by amending the existing unemployment insurance (UI) that companies are required to carry. The benefit would apply only when employers don’t offer paid maternity leave, and would be paid for by offsetting reductions in the program so that taxes are not raised. This enhancement will triple the average paid leave received by new mothers.
Not only is this the expanding of the welfare state but, if history is a guide, it’s only the beginning. What part of “RINO” doesn’t apply to Trump? Where is this stark dichotomy between Trump and Hillary? Would we not simply be voting for our own kind of a Hillary? Isn’t he just Hillary with red hair who can stand up on his feet a little better?
