The proposal also calls for providing six weeks of paid maternity leave through unemployment benefits to parents whose employers don’t offer paid maternity leave….The Trump campaign said the cost of his paid-leave policy would be offset by reducing waste and abuse in the unemployment insurance program.

Where have I heard the fraud and waste bit before? Oh yes, Obamacare snd Medicare😗
Forget for a moment the debatable issue of why taxpayers should fund paid leave for other Americans who decide to have children, the issue of the moment is the absurdity of assuming it can be paid for by reducing fraud and waste; something dare I mention should be the ongoing job of the bureaucracy running the unemployment insurance program.
I wonder what they are going to use the money for from cutting fraud and waste in the paid maternity leave program?
We have a knack for paying for the things we want by not actually paying for them. Aren’t you insulted yet by the pandering?
