What I find interesting with the US system is their welfare is not even remotely supportive of struggling families and has been this way for years..... yet they are in still in dire straits financially. So obviously the issue wasn't the welfare system lol
i recieved this bonus for the first time this year. i never claimed in at tax time before. although it helped me greatly i dont expect this money. i have 4 kids in school now and until recently i was a single parent. i managed to put my other kids through school without the bonus and im sure i can again. i dont vote for anyone as none of them deserve my vote but this wouldnt change my opinion if I was willing to vote
Abbott also plans to make child care more affordable and increase the government parental leave which is great
I don't think that the school bonus should only apply to the lower income earners. It should apply to everyone so I think it should be axed to save money.
So bc it's means tested no one should get it? People are saying plan ahead and pay for your own kids... so why on earth if a single mum should be able to afford it, shouldn't someone on 150+k?
Under the argument you know what kids cost, prepare for it, shouldn't those on PPL plan ahead instead of having the tax payer fund them?? and again I support PPL all the way, I'm just pointing out the inconsistencies here. It seems this isn't about saving tax payers, but wanting the money to go to the rich and not the poor.
