On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” columnist Charles Krauthammer reacted to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s child care proposal by saying, “What he is proposing is to out-Democrats the Democrats.” And “how many Democratic Parties does the country need? We already have one.”
Krauthammer said, “Trump, himself, is the one who brings up the deficit and the debt all the time as a sign of our decline, a sign of having government out of control and having incompetence in government. Look, I think this raises the question of how many Democratic Parties does the country need? We already have one. And I thought during the primary season, the argument for Trump was he was a guy who would stand up to the Washington Republican sold-out establishment that refused to stand up to Barack Obama on higher spending, refused to stand up to him on entitlements, refused to stand up to him on executive actions, and therefore, we needed an outsider, a disrupter, named Donald Trump, who would not do this.
What he is proposing is to out-Democrats the Democrats. This is an enormous entitlement. It will blow the debt, and when he says the mandate, he’s going to mandate from Washington, isn’t that the one thing that Republicans all agree upon of the government stepping in and telling private industry what to do? He says that will be paid for by taking out waste, fraud, and abuse from the unemployment insurance system. If you believe that, you will believe anything.” Video: http://www.breitbart.com/video/2016/09/13/krauthammer-trump-child-care-plan-is-to-out-democrats-the-democrats/
Charles is exxagerateing in terms of 2016 Democrats, but not 2012 Democrats. Hillary Clinton in 2016 is the first Democrat to detail a plan similar to Trump, and she did it first.
The idea came from Ivanka Trump who indeed is a major Democrat funder, giving 98% to Democrats like Hillary Clinton and Harry Reid. She gave 2% to only two Republicans, Establishment Republicans Mitt Romney and John McCain.
