  1. Covid cases will probably shut them down, even if they open up. Our school just opened up 3 weeks ago, and we already have 6 classrooms shut down and quarantining. Ugh!

  2. Too many single moms out there. You say my body my choice but I say your body your responsibility….Thanks for having me on Maury

  3. Sergeant Robert Justin Alford green at Nellis Air Force Base and Deborah freedman where is my daughter Jahmela and her 4 children and what have you done to them….

  4. Since May 2018 I've paid $30,000 in child care. My daughter is done July 2022. I'm happy if someone only has to pay $10,000 plus $2000 in taxes. That way they can buy a house or better vehicle.

  5. People should really think a million times before having a kid. This world is kinda getting worse for a child to live in.

  6. Four decades ago a big family could live out of one salary & had free to low childcare; now with less kids to watch the others is impossible.

  7. Democrats answer is slaughter more innocent babies by abortions, such hypocrites and very sick people.

  8. How can anyone in America expect for the working class to move forward and get ahead if they cannot obtain a living wage and good safe affordable child care as well as health care insurance? Even with these benefits made affordable and available many of them will still be in a rental situation and not be able to to afford to buy their own home. But at least they will have a roof over their family's head that they are paying for without government assistance. That gives them a feeling of pride and success. This is a hand up, not a hand out, and that's what the American people want and need. Also the unions are stepping in to do their part, so please support them and do not hold them back. It could be a huge mistake. They already have plans in place for training the American workers. Those of us in unions know what is to be given a hand up through training and support from our fellow workers. The simple fact is the AMERICAN UNION WORKING CLASS BUILT THIS COUNTRY and we can repair it too. (#BuildBackBetter) We always have, and always will, support the working class because we ARE the working class. Support the unions…all of them!! (I am a proud member of IBB Local 549.)

  9. We certainly have a child care crises. The mother has rejected her role. The poor child has an absent father and a silly, foolish mother.
