The Affordable Care Act is likely to dominate the political debate leading up to the national midterm elections. The Republican message will concentrate on popular dissatisfaction with the law, but it appears there will be little talk about a practical alternative.
Rich Jones, the Bell's director of policy and research, testified Wednesday in favor of a plan to help more low- to moderate-income Coloradans receive an income tax credit for child-care expenses.
The Bell has long advocated for policies to help working families better afford the cost of child care. We believe affordable care provides greater stability for families and helps them achieve self-sufficiency.
