Governor O'Malley proposes Reform Social Security to support, rather than penalize, caregiving.

Governor O'Malley proposes:

Reform Social Security to support, rather than penalize, caregiving. Governor O’Malley supports providing up to five years of “caregiver credits” that would increase the 35-year wage base for those who spend an extended period of time providing full-time care for children, elderly parents, or other dependents. In practice, current methods of calculating benefits penalize workers, most often women, who take extended time off to care for their families.

Hillary Clinton to Propose Tax Credit for Caregivers.

'Her Democratic rivals for the nomination, Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, are in favor of small tax increases to pay for large programs. Sanders supports a 2.2% tax increase to pay for single-payer healthcare, and O’Malley has voiced support for a Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand-sponsored paid family leave bill, which includes a 0.2% middle class tax increase.

The debate over whether to raise any taxes has become a contentious debate in the Democratic primary.'

1. Good for O'Malley.

Sanders wants a tax increase to pay for a system that is so appalling to me that I opted out. And will pay a penalty for doing so.

Fuck it.

I currently have no choices here in California. I can go with the Health Provider that brought about a medical bankruptcy (Kaiser Permanente) or else with Anthem, which rarely honors any payments for reimbursement and you get stuck with the bill. (If you' re on the Exchange, that is; I am sure things are much nicer for people with premium, Corporate derived health insurance.)

I am very upset to read this about Sanders.

2. Are you talking about maternity leave?

May I ask what is so appalling about it? I don't live in CA, so I just wanted to know what the failings of the system are.
