    I think some people meant the vouchers would be great for the people who are suspected of neglecting their children, underfeed them and spend their money on cigs and alcohol. Perhaps they are in there asking for money every other week even though the amount they had given was absolutely sufficient for food for the month...and you see them down your local most nights...that kind of thing.

    I think a card with money on it, that is linked back to centrelink and is unique to that individual should be given out to those kind of people, and they have to show picture ID at the checkout and sign.

I'm sorry but I've got the bl00dy right to spend my money when and where I please. I don't need to have it monitored by everyone else. Actually, let's give the FTB to everyone in vouchers too. Ugh. This sickens me every time I here people getting so d@mn superior about what others on benefits should do.
    It sickens me to see children go hungry, dirty and cold. It sickens me that rather than do something to prevent then some people would prefer to sit back and talk about our 'right' to do what we want with our money.

    It has absolutely nothing to do with feeling superior, and everything to do with wanting to prevent children going without because their stupid parents can't organise their way out of a paper bag. I am sick of being polite about this - there are some families who should NOT have children and the children that they do have should be protected to the point that they at least know where there next meal is coming from. They should know that they can have nappies with the kid money their mum or dad is receiving, not another bloody opportunity to watch their parents get falling down drunk before they leave them in the house at two years of age.

    These sorts of protections are NOT for everyone on assistance, but for those who have shown that they are unable to organise their finances so their children can continue to eat and have basic subsistance levels of comfort.

    You want to talk about rights? How about the right of children to food, shelter and clothing.

    That sounds like a great idea... I'm imaging the campaign ad.

    "Let's keep them poor, but poor enough to support themselves by giving them a low wage, no skill job, where they're paying tax, instead of being supported by our valuable tax dollars. We don't want them educated, after all, it's cheaper to outsource educated employees from countries with barely any employment laws."

    If a parent is neglecting their children then i support the government's current program of controlling the parents money,

    They Have a system in place already,
    They take money automatically and give cards for certain stores to proven neglectful parents

    This however should not br a blanket approach for all the welfare recipient

    My Ds is well fed, owns more clothes than myself and goes for nothing, I work my budget out perfectly for this.

    We only spend 30-50$ per fortnight on fresh fruit and veg though (thank you local fresh produce market)

    I would be ****ed and alot worse off if forced to shop at one of my larger supermarkets for fresh produce

    Yep, absolutely it is. That post you have repeated was in response to a few posts that insinuated that it was somehow superior to think in this way.
