Venture Capitalist Vance Can’t Understand Why Working Ohioans Would Want Child Care
April 29, 2021
Columbus, OH — Today, venture capitalist J.D. Vance went on a long-winded rant against help for working Ohioans who are struggling to pay for child care, unable to understand why they too can’t turn to their billionaire Big Tech donors, as he always has. Back here on Earth, a recent study placed Ohio as one of the top three states in the country for average increase in child care costs since the start of the pandemic. The study showed a 102% increase in cost for child care in Ohio, moving from $7,554 per child to $15,230 per child.
Calling universal day care ‘class war against normal people,’ Vance clearly showed just how out of touch he really is with the needs of working Ohioans.
“J.D. Vance has been living in his Big Tech bubble too long. As venture capitalists like J.D. game the system to line their own pockets, working Ohioans playing by the rules are being forced to choose between paying for child care or putting groceries on the table. If J.D. can’t understand why child care help would be welcome news for Ohio families, he certainly doesn’t deserve to represent them in Congress,” said Matt Keyes, spokesperson for the Ohio Democratic Party.
Last night, President Biden released his American Families Plan, which among other things, would provide investments to help Ohio families afford child care and provide universal kindergarten. The proposal would also include paid sick and medical leave for working Ohioans and help with the cost of higher education for Ohio students and families.
