    I think this is a huge piece that would really help ease the financial burden of having children and improve our economy. It is unfortunate, but cost of child care has absolutely been one of the larger reasons my wife and do not have kids. When you live in a city where costs of rent for a one bedroom basically starts at $1,600 and child care alone can be as much as $2,000 a month, it becomes a really difficult financial decision to make.

    This need for assistance on child care has only been more pronounced given our current pandemic situation, which is putting a significant strain on working mothers struggling to balance work and child care.
