President Obama tried to rally his supporters, and ended up smacking the choice of women to stay home with their kids.
And sometimes someone, usually mom, leaves the workplace to stay at home with the kids, which then leaves her earning a lower wage for the rest of her life as a result. That’s not a choice we want Americans to make.
When you factor in the cost of childcare and extra taxes paid, staying at home can be a better economic decision for one parent.
No amount of higher taxes can make up for time spent with your child.
