house Bill H.R. 7327

Should the Federal Gov’t Provide $10B in COVID-19 Relief to the Child Care Industry?

Argument in favor

Child care providers have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. Congress should stabilize these essential businesses, whose services are necessary to working families, to ensure that they make it through the current public health crisis. Stabilizing child care providers is especially important in communities of color, where businesses may have trouble accessing more institutional forms of capital.

This bill should be part of HR 7027 - which is similar in nature. Putting both bills together would consolidate the effort and avoid confusion.

This is a NON-QUESTION. Of course, children should have guaranteed healthcare, more especially because of Covid. It's ridiculous the Dems have yo FIGHT THE REPUBLICANS TOOTH & NAIL TO GET HELP FOR THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY. THEY ARE WHO PAY CONGRESS’ SALARY.

Argument opposed

Congress has already allocated $3.5 billion to child care providers in the CARES Act, so this legislation is unnecessary. Child care providers that need assistance now can apply for Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans, which are meant to help small businesses like them remain solvent during the pandemic. Additionally, if current lockdowns continue, many families may not need child care providers outside the home — so it’s possible that child care providers won’t be needed to the same degree as before in the new normal.

Weird as it may seem, I DO NOT think this is a good idea. This will encourage the Petri dish called child care to reopen. That’s not a good idea. So no. Stay closed. Keep your kids and STAY HOME.

Oh, Hindsight, I am so glad you have kept a log of the Tyrant’s abuses. Thank you so much. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻❤️❤️❤️😊😊😊. What saddens me is just HOW MANY ABUSES THERE HAVE BEEN! I believe cities like Portland should arrest all HIS ILLEGALS. Those who pretend to be “military” officers. I believe they are just his white supremacists, in “wolves clothing.” They are there ILLEGALLY and subverting our First Amendment right to peaceful protest, while injuring the protesters as well. I say throw them ALL in jail and let the Courts decide the validity of their presence. Any of them who can be proven to have caused injury to anyone should be brought up on charges of assault! Enough of allowing this crap. If we don’t act now, things will balloon even more out of control! Otherwise, let’s declare marital law and BE RID OF HIM NOW. HAS HE NOT DONE ENOUGH DAMAGE ALREADY, THE BASTARD? I have, absolutely, no respect for any of them. If I did, I would not use this language. They give no respect to others. They deserve NONE IN RETURN! I call a spade a spade. And when I call them Bastards, I am really being nice...

    More distractions from controlling COVID-19. With surges in the Southern states now taking more allocations of medical supplies, hospitals have new triage procedures on who gets treated and who does not as shortages are anticipated, the 1st is Remdesivir. Much of what is covered in this bill is not COVID-19 related and addresses taxes & tax deductible expenses based on not having access to an employer sponsored HSA account provided by some employers but not all, many which only offer FSA accounts, and small businesses that may have neither. The Covid-19 related items are part of PPP for small businesses. Perhaps this is why this has been proposed as a separate bill but it shouldn’t be deemed COVID-19 but instead expanding the HSA program beyond employer sponsored.

    The American people, especially the poor and especially small businesses which include vital childcare need help. An awful lot of the previous relief went to wealthy corporations. We, the people need all the help we can get.

    Yes. But the racist stone cold heartless mother fucking Republicans will probably not support such a humane initiative since it could benefit black and brown babies.

    The federal government could give us all relief by cutting taxes and spending. Are we supposed to call it relief when the give us some of our own money back?

    The government has no money to give. They only have money it takes from taxpayers in the first place. It will just create a additional burden on taxpayers down the road.

    While children may, generally speaking, not suffer the ravages of the coronavirus, I have not heard anywhere that they can’t be carriers. If we want parents to get back to work, there needs to be childcare available ( employers, if they have the space, could alleviate much of that burden for their employees). The quickest way to get back to something resembling normal, is to take a step back and develop a nation plan to tackle the virus. It can’t be 50 different plans with 50 different goals. Even if a state stumbles on the perfect plan, the bozos in the next state over can undo all that progress by deciding to get out of the pandemic on the cheap, as it were, thinking that economic activity is more important that the health of their residents. Fix the pandemic comprehensively, first- pay the cost of our lack of preparation for the foreseeable, then fix the economy and creating a system that doesn’t just benefit the few and leaves everyone else scrabbling for the crumbs.
