Every person enters and exits this life in need of care.
90% of all Caregivers of children and adults are women.
More men give care every day, especially to adults.
Giving care costs money, takes time, and is work.
Caregivers of adults alone save taxpayers three hundred billion dollars annually.

Giving care should not mean opting for financial distress or poverty. Millions of caregivers - often sandwiched between two generations - struggle for family stability. We can all do something about it.

An elegant, transparent way for society to help without more bureaucracy would be to convert the $1,000 per-child-tax credit to a Caregiver Credit for care of adults and kids. Made fully refundable, poor families as well as middle and upper would benefit.
