Bit political Tax Credits

@unisontweets @JeremyCorbyn4PM are tweeting a link to a calculator showing how much tax credits families will lose here As far as I can see there is no protection for carers who cannot work full-time, no plan to fix the problem of disabled childcare before implementing the cuts and no financial help for childcare for older children. Is this right? As far as I can see we will be £3000 worse off (2 parents work PT earning over living wage p/hr when we do work, one on carers)

The carer issue seems to have been missed by all the mainstream media (and charities), or am I just missing something?

(If you want you can tweet your loss @unisontweets @JeremyCorbyn4PM)

Without tax credits we would have lost our house in the year or so after DS was diagnosed and we had to home ed.

I'm not sure that's going to be accurate ... It asks very basic information for the calculation purposes ...
