    Default New Budget

    Let's not forget Joe Hockey claims $189 per night away from home allowance when he's in Canberra.... To stay in a house his wife owns.

    One click of the thanks button does not do this comment justice.

    I'm going to preface this by very clearly saying I support mums wanting to be home well beyond the 6 weeks, but you dont have to be home beyond that. Want to? yes, and that's fully understandable. But technically it's a choice after the 6 week mark.

    I do appreciate people's perspectives. I'm holding my baby as I type and I've been a bit emotional reading how desperately women want to be home but can't be. My heart broke a little reading Meplushe's post We have made sacrifices for me to be home but I feel so so lucky.

    7500 isn't enough anymore. Prices are steadily climbing. Parents shouldn't spend 1/4 of the year paying full fees, it's ridiculous. There should be no cap.

    One of the proposed change is to remove the cap for families earning less than $185k a year.
    For families over that the cap is increased to $10k.

    oh that's good news I didn't know that. I still don't support taking ccb away. Even if they took it from 2 days subidised to 1.
