“Big government” is defined by how much it takes from our pockets, not by how it spends the loot.
Mr. Martin’s plan puts daycare workers on the government payroll. Mr. Harper’s puts parents and daycare companies on the government payroll. To the taxpayer, this is a distinction without a meaningful difference. To “get it right”, instead of left, one would simply tax us all less.
