The Conservative Child Care Allowance - More Damage Than Good

The Conservative Child Care Allowance has always left me a little baffled. It looked like nothing more than a regurgitation of the Family Allowance (Baby Bonus) with slightly increased dollars. However, Laura over at Liberalism Without Cynicism has picked out an analysis by the Caledon Institute which sheds new light on the Conservative plan.

we have a "child care proposal" aimed at people who are already deemed not to need federal help meeting their child care expenses and who don't actually use paid child care.
It's worth a very close read and Laura's analysis comes with the authority of a degree in economics.
