    Annabel should ask the guru Joe Biden.
    Just don’t do it in person without a helmet.

    Hiring a childcare worker not only provides a job, but frees up another person to do another job. Why doesn’t this ever seem to enter the equation?

    who is paying for the hire of this person?

    if it is the person being freed up to do another job, fine, but it’s not is it?

    I know someone who is a researcher and earns far far less than a childcare worker, but is thrilled to be freed up to pursue her rearch into some dead australian language.

    this is just frivilous

    people now feel they are entitled to have the community fund their lifestyles, that i

    Crabb is an utter lightweight, even amongst the staff co-op.

    Non means tested free child care is the holy grail of feminist socialism.
    Now that they have had a brief taste they won’t rest until its made permanent.
    Its already greens policy and will be Labor policy too before the next election.

  5. H B Bear

    Having a child and handing its development and education to the State is a socialist’s wet dream as well.

    Taxpayer funded childcare.
    Why should mothers taking care of their own children be forced to subsidize babysitters for employed moms?

    (Feminist) Women ignored in Budget
    They mean no new $ in 2020 to the $150m ALREADY GIVEN IN ADVANCE for DV covid support + the $340.7m to National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women

    That’s over $1 BN given to DV since 2013 + 3 BN from States.

    Has DV reduced?
    Has any money been provided to male victims?

    Meanwhile the car industry & an airline disappeared

    Get cracking! Have a go! In The Apprentice, boldness is rewarded, as is hard work and bravado.

    I couldn’t agree more.
    Very tired of the constant “women are victims” (even when they’re not) trope.

    And Monty ripostes with a cliche’d Gillard line that never cut the mustard when she said it. The fact that this woman is a lightweight cretin has nothing to do with her sex, but she opened her gob and stuck both feet in it. A prime example of a male version would be Cameron Stewart in todays Aus. But in your view that would make me a misandrist.

    I hold the very unfashionable view that an unexpected favourable outcome of this otherwise disastrous virus has been that children have experienced the consistent attention of mothers (and fathers) for extended lengths of time.

    The bleating of women who have been required to supervise (yes, supervise – NOT teach) learning modules of children during COVID has been deafening.

    Because families supported by one breadwinner while the other cares for the kids is sooooo awful.
    Both should be working full time and allowing relative strangers to raise their kids.
    This will “level” kids all the same so parents cant unfairly give their children advantages in life by teaching their own values/examples & morals.

    Monty thinks supporting and enabling poor life choices with demonstrated poor outcomes for the kids (on average) makes him progressive.

    Spoiler: It makes you complicit in harming kids…

    It’s ironic, no? Annabel Crab has made her trademark dressing up like a 50’s housewife.

    She says this part of the budget shows where the losers are.

    But look closer, there are losers

    A close reading of the Budget reveals who doesn’t need help.

    Universities, for one. Refugees, for another: scattered across the fine print of Budget Paper Two are the elements of what turns out to be a billion-dollar saving from reducing the Humanitarian Program.

    From now on, Australia will accept a cap of 13,750 humanitarian places; this will save the Budget $958.3 million in health and social spending over four years.

    To compensate for our coronavirus-related immigration slump, the number of family stream places will escalate from 47,732 to 77,300.

    Universities — hard-hit by the decrease in international students and unable to claim JobKeeper — have little joy in the Budget.

    The work of building businesses, dams, roads, waterways and gas fields is handsomely recognised.

    Building social housing? Not so much.

    You gotta laugh at the ABC egghead.

    I always liked being a journalist, wife, mum, even at ABC and Fairfax, but especially at News and freelance, with my own choices. into finance and business management, organising family businesses. Life can be variable, even down to being an art/antiquities dear plethoras, when required.

    don’t be fooled by the zeroes

    Can we remove a zero from Aunty’s $Bil annual budget?

    The Yartz are now part of the Transport portfolio – they could paint a few rocks with $100 Mil p.a.

  22. Squirrel

    “Free” childcare is also about wealth transfer and (even further) subsidizing the incomes of some households so that they can spend more money on important things like imported discretionary consumer goods and over-priced housing – so it is a very popular idea with the purveyors of those things as well as with entitled feminists.

    In the world we now live in, it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to find a plausible public policy argument to provide taxpayer funded vouchers for “stressed mums” to have their nails done and get massages from hot pool boys.

    As a Wesfarmers shareholder, I believe it his democratic right to smash himself on a fresh one whenever he pleases!

  25. Dianeh

    I am just astounded that anyone thinks free child care should be a thing.

    I think child care should be a tax deduction, not a rebate.

    Let people make there own decisions based on their own finances and whether it is worth it financially. If it’s not financially viable for a family, then it is not financially viable for the country.

  26. Roger

    Having a child and handing its development and education to the State is a socialist’s wet dream as well.

    Yes; it was pioneered by the Soviets.

    Countries like the US and Australia were critical of it.

    Then subsidised childcare was introduced into Australia by Whitlam…naturally.

    I always thought he had contrarian instincts matched with a mediocre intellect, and even then the former was dominant.

    But on the post where people were relishing Trump’s speedy recovery his mask slipped. He was angry. He had invested so much in Trump being on the verge of death that he lashed out in impotent rage, even telling JC to shut up – quite out of character, when it was taken from him.

    Universities, for one.

    Fact check: Partly true.
    The major premise, though stated sarcastically, is demonstrably true. Universities don’t need more taxpayer money.
    The minor premise, you need to look at the budget to draw that inference, is false. You just need to recall that Melbourne University has hired Bruce Pascoe, on a taxpayer funded salary, as “Professor” of Indigenous Agriculture.

    Why is it sexist to call out any innumeracy of left leaning women?

    Are you telling me they are innumerate? How very sexist – of you.

  35. Old Lefty

    Misogyny FFS. Public policy for the last fifty has been blighted by the Marxo-feminoid policy of extermination by fiscal persecution of the married stay-at-home mother. They are below the untouchables I political correctoid Thinkspeak. That is the cruellest form of misogyny. One of Abbot’s greatest failings in office was to cave into it (because the big end of town likes it, because more people seeking jobs equals lower wages).

  36. The Sheriff

    There should be ZERO government spending on child care or family benefits. The only family support that should exist is income splitting.

    This will ensure that stable, married, productive couples have more children and dysfunctional harlots with a revolving door of impregnators have fewer.

    On first seeing the picture, I was wondering what John Travolta had to do with Scott Morrison. And then it clicked and I wondered when Frydenberg last had as much hair.

    The Cat returns to misogyny like a dog to its vomit.

    Hilarious. At a time when girls and women routinely prostitute themselves on OnlyFans, pornhub, etc. and yet it’s the idea of women looking after their own children that is the epitome of misogyny.
