No support for those who already have kids

Here’s an interesting aspect of ’s announcement yesterday.

If a low to middle income family already has kids at school, they get nothing at all. Say you have three kids at primary school and your family income is $60,000. You get not one cent as far as I can tell.

But if you are a backbench MP who gets pregnant, or whose partner gets pregnant, in the near future, then Labour will give you $60 a week for a year.

This is why National should offer tax cuts, because all working families benefit from tax cuts, including those who have already had their babies.
