Two bits of business before the list: 

  1. All donations to me through February 28th, 2017, will go to Trans Lifeline. To avoid the processing fee that my donation processor takes, please feel free to donate directly to them at https://www.translifeline.org/donate
  2. I am going to take Saturday off again this week and do a weekend round up on Sunday night. 
So we see the overall shape of Ivanka Trump’s signature policy idea. Wealthy families who can easily front the cash for a daycare or an au pair will get a nice fat tax reduction when their accountant files their taxes for them — and the richer they are, they more they will get, up to quite a high bar. The top half of poor families will get a few scraps, assuming they can navigate their way through the hellish paperwork to claim the EITC properly, while the poorest of the poor will get little or nothing.
