NDIS: National Disability Insurance Scam
By John Counsel
In Australia, the recently-introduced NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) has fallen foul of outdated legislation, regulations and eligibility criteria for funding under the scheme. Most of all, though, it’s been an outrageous act of political chicanery, from all sides of politics
It was also introduced in the dying days of the Rudd-Gillard-Rudd Labor Federal Government, which was replaced by the conservative LNP government, which has no love for socialised systems, but lacked the numbers in Federal parliament to get rid of it altogether.
So they did the next best thing… they’ve starved it of funding, and obscured that reality by not updating the eligibility criteria to include Asperger’s Syndrome in NDIS funding!
Then, in April 2019, in the Budget released just before the Federal election, the Government confiscated all funds allocated to the NDIS — but not yet spent — for other purposes.
NEVER forget that election promises made by politicians are all VOID upon closure of the polling booths!
