Capitol Report: What Elizabeth Warren is promising in her ‘Universal Child Care’ plan — and how she’ll fund it

Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has rolled out a plan that promises to make child care more affordable, as she aims to address a major pocketbook issue for parents.

The Massachusetts senator’s Universal Child Care and Early Learning program would provide free child care to families whose earnings are below two times the federal poverty level, according to her blog post on Medium.com.

The federal poverty level ranges from an annual income of about $21,000 for a family of three to about $35,000 for a family of six.

For families earning more than two times the federal poverty line, Warren’s plan would cap the cost of child care at no more than 7% of that family’s income, she said.
