Entitlement is 'the' key factor of the NDIS principle! People with a disability need an entitlement to services, not the present 'stand-in-line' for a possible charity hand-out. But Mr Hockey says entitlements are a millstone around the neck of goverment.

"It is ironic that entitlement system seems most obvious and prevalent in some of the most democratic societies. Most undemocratic nations are simply unable to afford the largesse of universal entitlement systems.

So, ultimately the fiscal impact of popular programs must be brought to account no matter what the political values of the government are or how ppular a spending program may be", said Mr Hockey.

LISA Comment: Clearly, Mr Hockey needs to be convinced of the popularity of NDIS, and how the funding will be found given, there are many others seeking government funding, such as, for dental, education, health environment, etc, etc.
