Treading deep into the core issues that Clinton and other Democrats regularly campaign on, the GOP nominee for president on Tuesday night will unveil new child-care policies.

Accompanied by his daughter, Ivanka who helped craft the child-care proposal and who spoke about the issue at the July Republican convention, Trump will roll out a policy plan designed to help middle and working class mothers better afford childcare.

His proposal would allow parents to deduct the average cost of childcare from their taxes, “guarantee” six weeks of paid maternity leave, create a Dependent Care Savings Account and which would allow “tax-deductible contributions and tax-free appreciation year-to-year.

The child-care proposal could help Trump appeal to as women and swing voters, blocs of voters who have resisted him.

From Breitbart:

“This does underscore a major contrast between our campaign and Hillary Clinton’s—you heard Mr. Trump talk about it last night at his rally in North Carolina: Mrs. Clinton doesn’t have a single original idea or a fresh concept about anything,” a senior Trump aide tells reporters. “Nobody knows why she’s running except that she feels like she’s entitled to be president and beyond that I guess she owes a lot of people a lot of favors. But in terms of helping the American people, you couldn’t name one reason.”

Trump’s plan focuses on using the tax code to help new parents to allow them to deduct both childcare expenses and elderly dependent expenses for up to four total dependents from their income taxes. Trump aides say the tax deduction is available for taxpayers who take the standard deduction and is capped at the average cost of care for the state of residence, but those in the upper echelon, making more than $250,000—or $500,000 if filing jointly—per year will not be eligible for it. It will also offer as much as $1,200 per year per eligible family in child care spending rebates through the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). Stay-at-home parents and working parents will both be eligible for the same tax deductions.

In addition, as the policy team for Trump laid out for reporters on Tuesday morning, Trump’s plan would create Dependent Care Savings Accounts (DCSAs)—as opposed to Dependent Care Flexible Savings Accounts (FSAs) in current law—that would be available to everyone. FSAs in current law are only available to people if offered by an employer, and they do not allow balances to accumulate or roll over. Trump’s DCSAs would offer both tax-deductible contributions and tax-free year-to-year appreciation, while also being available to everyone. The accounts allow for people to set aside extra money to pay for both childcare and for care of elderly dependents.

When helping children, the Trump team notes, it can be applied to traditional childcare, after-school programs and help with school tuition—in addition to Trump’s school choice program. For lower-income parents, Trump’s team notes, the government will match half of the first $1,000 deposited in the account per year. When used for helping elderly dependents, Trump’s team notes that the DSCA accounts can be used for covering a variety of services including in-home nursing and long-term care.

This is a plan Democrats would love if Crooked Hillary came up with it, but instead they are bashing it for funding reasons.

All of the sudden big government liberals are worried about how to fund something… now that’s funny.

God Bless.
