why should one form of benefits (ccr/ccb) be exempt from limits?
besides if you cant afford childcare then you shouldnt have that many kids, right?
Ive had moments where I wish there was a loop hole in human right to sterilized certain people. Namely my previous neighbour who after having her kids taken off her by DOCS & put in their fathers care would loudly and often complain about not getting parenting payments & FTB and said she will just have to get pregnant again to remedy the situation.
But.... I cant think of an ethical or practical way to prevent people like her having more children.
Also what happens if someone has 6 kids, both on decent wages, can more than afford the kids without childcare, ftb, any supplements, etc, then one is injured and laid off and the other is forced to cut back to part-time. How do they continue to raise 6 kids if payments are capped at 3? Child support is already capped at 3 which I never understood either.
