Hillary Rodham Clinton is enlisting the support of her daughter Thursday, at least in part because her own voice is ailing.

Campaigning in Indiana, she's been pitching her ideas for helping working families. She's proposing an experiment involving the federal and state governments to fund paid family leave. Clinton says most people can't afford to take the unpaid leave that federal law currently allows.

Her proposal calls for a $3,000 tax credit to an individual with substantial long-term care needs or to their caregivers. There's also a tax credit to cover long-term care insurance premiums. Clinton is also calling for seven guaranteed sick days for full-time workers.

Saying she was losing her voice, Clinton handed the microphone to her daughter Chelsea at one point. The younger Clinton described the details of her mother's proposed universal health care plan.
