    Unless there are medical recommendations the rebate for SAHP's should be no greater than 50% regardless of their income level.

    I am swinging between agreement and disagreement. Either way you have me thinking so hats off to you for that!

    I'm aware of the under 65k bracket, but wondering where the 85% come from, I haven't read that so was wondering where cheesecake read it.

    Completely agree. But this govt and Abbott is hardly forward thinking for woman's rights. This is the guy that tried to block the introduction of Ru-40, tells women to cherish their virginity, wastes money on free marriage counselling (can't have women leaving matrimony!!) and says women don't have the genetic ability to be leaders. It's no wonder the same govt is not acting on serious DV issues.

    I totally agree that that domestic violence statistics are completely unacceptable, and I know that the media, if not the government (don't know what/ if the government is doing anything or not) is raising the issue of DV a lot at the moment.

    I guess the difference with counter terrorism is the sheer number of potential deaths. A DV incident would cause the death of 1 person. Yes, that is awful - 1 person too many, and it is not ok by any means. But a terrorist incident can cause the death of tens, hundreds, thousands of people in one incident. I have a close family member who works in counter terrorism, and the things I hear are absolutely astounding. Things that everyday Aussies are completely unaware of, the amount of terror attacks that are prevented all the time. ISIS is a huge problem at the moment, world wide, like it or not. So, yes, for the sake of my childrens safety now and in the future, I support counter terror funding. I again am biased though, because of information that I have been privvy to.

    I'm sure this will shock you, but as a SAHM I agree.

    I've been trying to find where I read it, here is an article on the proposed changes, but doesnt say what I read, I will keep looking though

    Families earning up to $65,000 will receive 85 per cent of the childcare cost per child, or a designated benchmark price, whichever is lower. That will reduce to 50 per cent for families with incomes of $170,000 and above
