The problem with anything that increases ‘the motherhood penalty’

I get it. I really do.
Where is the utility in giving a family with a household income in excess of $350K any subsidy for their children to attend childcare? Is this entitlement gone mad? How greedy to expect a handout at that income level.
Perhaps, on an individual level, it may seem that way but it’s the collective consequences of withdrawing help – even to high income families – that I’m concerned with.
