    So it's okay for the government to fund YOUR choice to stay at home and parent, but no one else's? Or is it that it's okay for the government to fund benefits only in cases where they are accessible to you?

    YOU seem to have a strong sense of entitlement!

    It's always about money with some people isn't it! The ALMIGHTY DOLLAR and where it comes from!

    You may not get any benefits but your attitude stinks and you're bringing up kids who are just like you! Selfish arrogant nasty people! I hope Karma comes and knock you off all your pedistals. Get over yourselves seriously...you're a disgrace to the human race!

    This isn't directed at you as I haven't seen you post in these sort of debates before. but your post got me thinking about a pattern I've noticed. People say low income families that ask for assistance are entitled. Yet in the next breath the same people will complain they don't get FTB bc their husband earns 150k or that their PHI rebate has gone down bc he's now earning over that amount. So a family on 15k is entitled for asking for help, but a family on 150k that believe they should still get payments and have the govt pay their PHI aren't? the concept confuses the heck of out me lol

    really so now if we dont agree then our kids are going to be bad people? My kids are awesome people and know they have to work for what they want. My 16 year old has a job because she wanted things that I wouldnt just hand her. Yeah I guess raising kids to know that welfare is not a choice unless you absolutely need it is bad. Teaching your kids that you dont simply have children get on welfare and exist, that you need to work hard and contribute to the community as much as you can. Glad you cleared that up I will have to quit my job and live off the government so they can learn to be good people. Thanks Ill get right on that.

    uh yeah, you must know some really ****ty people,
    personally I dont know ANYONE who sits down and says hey I know I think I'll have a kid (that I must then RAISE for the next 18-25 years) JUST so I can get 1100 (generous here) a fortnight, score ladies and gentlemen I think I have found the money and a brilliant idea!

    My parents lived on welfare for times in their lives and I like to believe I am a good person, my son has had his mother live on welfare at times in his life and HE is a good person,

    He will be raised with a good work ethic but also that it is OKAY to ask for HELP when you NEED it and to have COMPASSION for those worse off than him.

    How do you know I was talking to you?

    BTW I'm talking about attitude, the attitude some have towards others who are worse off than them and bringing children up with the same compassionless attitude!

    If the boot fits - wear it! If not then don't!

    and for what it is worth the ORIGINAL question was about raising the LOOKING FOR WORK payment, not ftb, not pp, not bb or ppl.

    the dole payment does NOT pay enough to live on by itself, fact!
    IT does NOT even pay enough to cover rent and electricity in most cases

    How do people live??? That's just nuts!

    And anyone who thinks anyone with a right mind would CHOOSE to live in such poverty needs their head examined!

    That's why they get rent assistance too, to cover rent.
