CHILD CARE DRIPS CONTINUE - BUT WE STILL HAVE NO IDEA WHO WILL BE WORSE OFF

May 03, 2015


Scott Morrison continues to play Australian families for mugs by refusing to outline how many families will be worse off as a result of next week’s budget.

The only thing Australian families know for certain is that Scott Morrison wants to make low and middle-income families up to $6000 worse-off to pay for his child care changes.

By cutting family payments to pay for child care changes, Scott Morrison is just robbing Peter to pay Paul. You cannot rip money away from families one day, then say you care about helping them with the costs of raising children the next.  

Labor will fight these unfair cuts to family payments until the Tony Abbott and Scott Morrison drop them forever. 

Time is ticking until parents find out if they - and their children - are locked out of the child care system completely. 

A true "families package" simply can't only trumpet the winners and ignore the losers.

 

It’s clear that the Government’s changes are all about helping the Prime Minister and nothing about helping Australia’s families.
