Why Biden’s ‘American Families Plan’ Is Anti-Family At Its Core:
President Biden’s recently announced American Families Plan goes all-in on public preschool and subsidized daycare, policies that use the state to empower a subsidized and distorted market at the expense of the family by forcing parents to work when they’d rather stay home.
For left-wing politicians like Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., who described family-provided child care as “tired” compared to the “wired” statist solution, that sounds just fine. Venture capitalist and likely future U.S. Senate candidate J.D. Vance takes the opposite view.
Vance cites an American Compass study that found poor and working-class parents of children under five greatly prefer having one parent stay home to provide child care. Upper-class parents, on the other hand, would rather drop the kids at daycare and focus on their high-powered careers, and they assume that the plebs want (or at least ought to want) the same thing. Vance called this attitude and the proposals that grow out of it “class war against normal people.”
As with so many policy debates, this one is nothing new. In his 1910 book “What’s Wrong with the World,” British journalist G.K. Chesterton perceived that “progressive fads” frequently “repose upon some experience peculiar to the rich.” He even applied this principle specifically to family policy. “The cultured class is shrieking to be let out of the decent home,” Chesterton wrote, “just as the working class is shouting to be let into it.” --->READ MORE HERE

The American Families Plan will do more harm than good:
President Ronald Reagan once said, “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.”
Those words couldn’t ring truer today as President Biden recently introduced the American Families Plan, a $1.8 trillion taxpayer-funded proposal that would radically undermine American families instead of help them. It would leave families with less control over their lives while failing to solve real problems Americans face in child care, education, health care and welfare — problems the proposal alleges to address.
For years, I’ve spoken up about what I call the unintended consequences of liberals’ misguided compassion. Practically every big-government social program that liberals have instituted in America has ended up doing more harm to the people they’ve claimed they were trying to help. I know, because I lived that experience as a child, and I’ve witnessed it every day in Black communities in the six decades since. The American Families Plan fits into this category. --->READ MORE HERE
