Campaign for a Family Friendly Economy PAC Celebrates White House Actions to Lower Child Care Costs for American Families

CFFE PAC Commends Vice President Harris’s Announcement of Key Steps to Lower Child Care Costs for Over 100,000 Families

WASHINGTON The Campaign for a Family Friendly Economy PAC (CFFE PAC) applauds today’s announcement by Vice President Harris of key steps the White House is taking to lower child care costs for working families and better support early educators. 

“Once again, the Biden-Harris administration has demonstrated its commitment to working families and child care providers by taking meaningful steps to address the spiraling cost of caregiving,” said Sondra Goldschein, Executive Director of the Campaign for a Family Friendly Economy PAC. “Child care providers across the country are struggling and shuttering their businesses in the wake of the expiration of federal funding to reduce costs and make child care more accessible. The steps the administration announced today will go a long way towards improving financial stability for families and businesses.”

“President Biden and Vice President Harris have made reducing the cost of caregiving a clear and present priority since they were elected. This is in stark contrast to Republicans, who continue to push an extremist agenda that would do little to actually support working families. This election season, CFFE PAC will be out there reminding voters that President Biden, Vice President Harris, and Democrats really have their backs.” 

Across the country, working families and child care providers are being stretched to their limits. This week, The New York Times reported about the challenges child care providers are facing in The Upshot. The piece featured Shineal Hunter, a child care provider and CFFE PAC supporter, as well as CFFE PAC Executive Director Sondra Goldschein. As costs rose and federal pandemic funds expired, Hunter had to close her child care center. 

CFFE PAC recently announced plans for a $40 million 2024 electoral investment that will support candidates who champion policies that prioritize family budgets including affordable child care, paid leave, and lower-cost prescription drugs over Republican extremist agendas. The program’s initial investments are focused on races in six key battleground states: Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Virginia, New Hampshire, Georgia, and Montana. This unprecedented investment will support robust door-to-door field programs, relational organizing, and paid advertising and mail in critically important races. 


CFFE PAC is dedicated to improving the lives of working families. In 2022, CFFE PAC ran a $13.5 million voter contact program communicating with voters about where candidates stand on policies that lower the cost of prescription drugs, ensure paid family and medical leave, and provide affordable elder and child care.
