    No, and I'm suspecting those that support it wouldn't support their own FTB, Baby bonus and Parental Leave being controlled like that but they are more than happy for 'poor' people on the dole, single parent and austudy to have it.

    Last time I checked people on benefits had the same human rights as people who work.
    Im all for it if the government also controls what peoples wages are spent on.
    Oh silly me I forgot that its only people on benefits that neglect and abuse their children.

    This is sort of related, but I'm aware in America they use food stamps - anyone know how it works? I have a feeling it is for the homeless only but would love to be educated

    Food stamps would be useless to me when I was studying and on aus study as mum would make my dinner at home #mummysgirl

    I'm quite up in the air about this.

    On the one hand i am a firm believer in small government and government not being directly involved in people's day to day lives unless absolutely necessary.

    On the other hand, if you accept money from the government, why shouldn't the government have some influence over how it is spent? From both a socially and fiscally responsible perspective?

    I accept money from my employer but will not let my bosses tell me how to spend it.

    So do you think that should include FTB, BB and PPL?

    Agreed. Maybe we should all just have our wages paid to us in Coles vouchers...down down, prices are down!
