Senate Says No to Childcare Handouts For Millionaires

Press Release

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Tom Coburn, M.D. (R-OK) released the following statement on the Senate's unanimous 100-0 vote to approve his amendment to the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act, S. 1086, that ends childcare subsidies for individuals whose assets exceed $1,000,000.

"The American people are compassionate. But they expect their tax dollars to help those who need help rather than those who don't. This vote is important victory for common sense and fairness. The unanimous support this amendment received signaled the Senate's support of income-testing as a way to save our safety net for poor families. I trust my colleagues will apply the same logic to that difficult task ahead."
