    Thank you but this is par for the course with this user most of her stuff directed at me gets deleted anyway maybe one day it will sink in. Are you from the states? My mom is republican too lol I dont even get her started on certain topics because they are very passionate about some topics and will go all night debating them

    Hmmm this topic is a tough one. And before anyone jumps on me please know my husband was recently made redundant, finished up on the same day and only received hours worked (no payout)

    We own our own home and the dole or 'new start allowance' would not cover 5% of our mortgage let alone food, petrol. Luckily we have some savings there we can fall back on but they wont last forever and I often wonder what would have happened if we didnt have the savings.

    I work part-time however cannot pick up more days as I need to have DS while DH looks for work during those days (the few interviews he has had have been last minute so we would have had no chance to find care) Literally we would have had to move in with my mum and rented our place out till we were back on our feet but what if I didnt have a mother/or we werent getting along or she didnt have the room. Truthfully we would be homeless, or we would have to sell our little town house and get what we can and start over There fore in this sense I think it should have been risen...

    However I also see some people quitting work and learning to live off the ammount they are given if it is high enough. My thought is - have it higher say for the first 3 months out of work and slowly taper it down, that way the people legitamtely out of work just need help will have money to keep going till they are back on their feet and those taking advantage will find their money running down???

    What do you think....oh and I dont agree with cutting the PHI payment - I think it will put way too much pressure on the public hospital system. Thats just my opinion.

    This could work, as long as they tapered it down enough that they cant live on it, also have really clear details on how it will be tapered and so people know exactly what they need to do. This along with more affordable CC and some more ways to help people get back to work would prob work well. Although this wouldnt change the current law because those going from PP to NS have already been on the payments for 6-8 years, or would you still boost their for a few months then taper?

I am sure the kids of these people who think working is good will be fine. Not sure why some people here have to drag and attack family members but hey if its how you try to win arguments by bashing other peoples kids thats great!
    Lack of compassion breeds. And as long as people continue with this attitude it will keep breeding and breeding and before long we will have a compassionless society where people are begging on the streets and selling their children to prostitution just to put food on the table. Get over yourself! If you think I'm talking about you...then perhaps you need to think about a few things. If you honestly believe that I'm NOT talking about you then what the hell are you worried about? Move along!
