All of us will need to care for ourselves or a loved one at some point in our lives. Unfortunately, the U.S. does not make this easy. We have no national paid family and medical leave policy. Families struggle to find and afford child care and aging and disability care that works for them. Yet at the same time, care workers are not paid enough to support themselves and their own families.

We all want to do what’s best for our families, and using federal tax dollars to strengthen and grow our care systems would go a long way toward ensuring that our loved ones receive the care that they need. We can raise the money we need to invest in care by taxing the wealthiest individuals and mega-corporations, who have had it too good for too long at the expense of women and families. Ensuring that the ultrarich and wealthy corporations pay their fair share will support public investments in paid leave, child care, and aging and disability care, which all of us need and deserve.
