Yes, it’s a classic boondoggle but surely an $8 billion expenditure deserves some evidence

April 6, 2015 by Martha Friendly

Probably shouldn't say "we told you so" but last Tuesday a Parliamentary Budget Office report confirmed what many have said since 2006: the UCCB cheque through the mail slot isn't child care. The PBO's analysis showed that more than half the "child care benefit" money (most of which is the Universal "Child Care" Benefit) will go to families who don't spend anything on child care. Moreover, the PBO calculated that these expenditures would reach $8 billion a year by 2017.
