    As lovely an idea as it sounds in theory, which other benefits will they cut to pay for it? Everytime a government 'gives something' they take the difference from the people who can least afford it. He also wants to scrap the carbon tax while he is at it making that even less money coming in. I refuse to vote for him at any rate. He is a neanderthal. I really dont want someone that sexist in a position with that much power.

    It will be funded by big companies - a 1.7% levy on businesses paying more than $5million in tax. This was reported in the Courier Mail 8/2 (google it). 6 months at the employers real salary.

    I wrote that so those that were interested could find the article that I read. So many assumptions that the baby bonus would be scrapped to pay for it, so I thought I would share what I had read, and where, about this 'proposal', no need to be a smarty pants about it. I like to read all proposals, which by politicians are usually all false promises, vote grabbing lies, but the more you read the more informed you become and the more likely you are to make a decision to vote correctly. There is just so much 'I hate liberal/labour, I hate tony/Julia' going on in bubhub world, I think more people need to read more widely and stop coming up with their own theories and then putting those ideas onto others (if I read just the beginning of this thread I probably would have run away saying 'oh no Tony wants to scrap the baby bonus to pay for rich people to take 6 months full pay at taxpayer expense' - a bit like Chinese whispers really).

    Thankyou for taking the time for your reply. I will have a read. I am always interested in reading both parties proposals, like you say, so I can be more informed when voting day comes around

    A pretty fair guess is lower and middle earners will fund it. This is the Libs we are talking about As I said, I expect the BB to be completely cut for SAHM's (which is ironic given he thinks a woman's place is ironing clothes), the school bonus will be gone and they will cut all the funding for the carbon tax.....

    which speaking of the carbon tax, I find it ironic the govt has made little money yet the energy companies have put prices thru the roof! They have totally profiteered.

    I'm all for it i personally think part of it will be funded by the fact that the recipient will still be paying their usual tax, rather than not contributing for 6-12 months.
    I'll give you an example ( of me) bubs due in august and ill be taking the 18 weeks and part pay at work for maternity leave ( so pretty much I'll be on half income for majority of the 13/14 financial year)
    because of our investment property deductions I will NOT pay ANY tax next financial year, so the government will be missing out on about 20k worth of tax revenue from me alone. We would also be able to spend like we are currently spending ( rather than being tight) so it helps economy that way and they get gist revenue.
    if I was able to get 26 weeks at full pay I wouldn't need to take mat leave at half pay therefore be able to pay full tax.
    Want to know the funny thing, because of my "low" income we could be eligible for government assistance too
