By now you should have seen this post about day care providers being forced to shut down their websites, as the Trump administration took a series of actions to crack down on the industry.
The first was the temporary shutdown of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), which oversees the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the US government’s parent agency that oversees day care.
The department has been forced to step in and shut down a number of services, including childcare and home care.CMS Secretary Tom Price has already taken the first steps in his administration to cut the number of US providers and the cost of day care, with the agency announcing on Monday that it would be suspending its certification process for all childcare providers.
“The Department of HHS is making an important commitment to ensure that the quality of the care provided by the Centers will be guaranteed by the CMS,” CMS wrote in a statement, according to The Washington Post.
“The Secretary has directed HHS to temporarily suspend certification processes for all of the child care providers under the jurisdiction of the Secretary’s office and has also ordered CMS to stop certification of day cares in its jurisdiction.
CMS will resume certification and training for all providers in the coming weeks.”
As the CMS statement explained, the move to suspend certification is a necessary step to ensure the quality and affordability of childcare for Americans.
While the decision to suspend certifying childcare providers may seem harsh, it’s actually part of a broader plan to limit costs for childcare providers in order to cut costs for the healthcare system.
“A significant number of childcare providers are already being cut by the Trump Administration,” Sarah Anderson, an associate director at the National Council of State Governments, told me.
“This means that the costs of childcare are going up.”
As a result, Anderson told me, “they are less likely to be willing to do this kind of work.”
And this is exactly what the Trump transition team wants to see happen with childcare.
On Monday, the president tweeted that he is working on a “major childcare proposal,” and has “big plans” for childcare.
But the Trump White House is taking the action to limit childcare providers, not necessarily to improve the quality or affordability of child care.
As the Washington Post points out, “the decision to stop certifying providers and suspend certification will not affect their ability to provide services to families.”
The Trump administration is making this decision to cut services, not to improve childcare for American families.
The Trump administration, in other words, wants childcare providers to shut their doors.
“If the Trump campaign had tried to shut the day care down and to shut out all day care in the city, you’d have a very different story,” Anderson told The Washington Times.
“I mean, the White House really wants to put people on the street to drive them out of business.
They’re trying to put the people who are working in the industry out of the industry.”
This is what we’ve been told about the Trump era.
When the Trump regime is forced to take drastic measures, like suspending certification of childcare, the effect will be to shut many childcare providers out of service.
This is why Anderson believes that the Trump government is actually planning to shut more childcare providers than they can afford.
The administration is planning to limit the supply of childcare workers in the United States, which means that more workers will be needed to provide care for the elderly, people with disabilities, people on Social Security and other benefits.
And this isn’t just happening because of Trump’s rhetoric.
The US Department of Labor has also been making it clear that the government is planning on shutting down many childcare programs.
In May, a spokesperson for the Department said that the department would be shutting down childcare in a matter of weeks, and it would do so “to save money and to provide more services to the American people.”
The Department for Labor is a federal agency that regulates the supply and delivery of healthcare and other public services.
The Labor Department said in May that it was “taking immediate action to eliminate” the requirement that all employers provide childcare to all workers, according in the statement.
The Trump Administration is taking drastic measures to limit access to childcare, but it’s also making it harder for the workers who work in childcare to get the care they need.
The childcare industry has been under the spotlight for years, as advocates have been trying to pressure Congress to pass legislation to limit or completely eliminate the government’s role in childcare.
In 2017, the National Coalition for Child Care, a coalition of labor, social service, and public interest groups, released a report on the growing costs of care, highlighting the high cost of childcare and other forms of care that go beyond day care services.
The report detailed how the costs were spiraling, with many childcare workers struggling to survive on $7.40 an hour.
The coalition’s executive director, Karen Breen, told the Associated Press that the “real cost of providing care in America is at the hospital and home.”
Breen continued, “We
