Trump’s “working moms” con: The GOP candidate’s child-care policy does little for the working class

So would the child-care deduction provide great tax relief for working- and middle-class families? According to the economists and experts I talked to, no.

“I’m failing to see how the policy would do that,” said Anna Chu, vice president for income security and education at the National Women’s Law Center. “As it stands right now, the structure of the deductions is such that it predominately favors higher-income families,” she noted.
