Competing plans on how the government should structure a national paid leave policy were debated this week at a Senate Finance subcommittee hearing. The two plans, one from Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) and the other by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), take completely different approaches on how to fund paid family leave at the national level. The Rubio plan, also sponsored by Senators Joni Ernst (R-IA) and Mike Lee (R-UT) would allow people to borrow from their Social Security account to pay themselves for family leave time. The democratic approach, sponsored by Gillibrand, would pay for leave benefits through a tax increase on employers and workers and would also allow coverage of leave for family emergencies in addition to child care. Presidential adviser and first daughter Ivanka Trump, who has been leading the White House effort to implement a paid leave plan, attended the hearing but did not testify nor speak to either of the proposals. The republican bill is expected to be reported out of committee as early as next week.
