Conspiracy of silence - Taxpayers funding millionaires' child care costs

Off the back of an interview with Education Minister Simon Birmingham yesterday, about high income earning families receiving rebates on their child care costs, Brian Carlton wonders whether there is a conspiracy going on.

Many very highly paid politicians, bureaucrats, and members of the media are all remaining rather silent about the questionable child care subsidies those earning over $250,000 are currently entitled to.

Is this selfishly because if the funding were to be cut, they would be losing out personally?

"Why aren't there marches in the street about this?" Brian asks.
