People should live within their means, pay for their own daycare

I do not agree with comments made by Martin Best in regards to daycare being subsidized by taxpayers.

The taxpayers’ daycare problems start right under their own roof of their home. They do not have to go and buy a brand new car or new furniture on credit. They can skip going out to a restaurant every weekend and paying the bill with a credit card. Some buy a boat and an RV that they use only two weeks a year and the rest of the year is parked in their driveways making monthly payments. You can still have the enjoyment of these pleasures. Just rent them for two weeks. Also skip away vacations until they can pay for these trips with their own cash and not by credit card.

These people can all afford paying for their own daycare expenses. All they have to do is start living within their means with accordance in what their take home pay from working brings them. Just pure everyday economical sense. The race in life is long, and so is everyone else’s. We do live in a world that you cannot have your cake and eat it too. Unbelievable!
