Im not saying everyone is like this, but i can fully understand the resentment towards these kind of people the PP is outlining. It depends on your experiences i guess.

This is my only concern about this new policy, that in the end it could disadvantage children even further if some parents still choose not to vax and loose part of their income.
Btw plenty of wealthy people take drugs.
Tax dollars also aren't a bank account you pay into where you can decide you don't want them to go to a particular thing. They pay for your roads, your local school and hospital, your local health clinic. Your tax dollars are not going to your neighbour.

Just popping in because it's getting a little heated - please keep posts on topic. I don't want to see it derail further and be closed because it gets out of hand.

I don't know if this has been said yet, but it has now been confirmed that both FTBA and all childcare payments will be affected by this. I completely agree with this.
Payments from the government are not a God-given right, they are a privilege. We are lucky to live in a society that helps provide for people. But living in society should also come with responsibilities to the wider community. You cannot just take the benefits but shun your responsibility. If you want to deny your children life-saving vaccines under the banner of freedom or body autonomy (genuine medical issues accepted), do that on your own dime. If you want society to provide you with support, it's completely reasonable for society to ask that you do your bit to stop the spread of VPD.
I haven't wanted to send my baby to childcare because he hasn't had his MMR vaccines yet. Measles are real and scary. There have already been outbreaks in schools. What would happen if there were an outbreak at a childcare centre, where there are babies under 12 months who have not been vaccinated yet? We shouldn't have to worry about these things in our society!

I think the answer is medicare levy on top of ftb. Then everyone is covered.
And I just have to say..... wealthy people can be drug addicts too. They just have the money to cover it up, see private practitioners and they tend statistically to use prescription drugs over street drugs.
