LETTER: Issue card so money can only be spent on necessities

LETTER TO EDITOR: The current government has tried to do many things that have had limited support, but I believe the idea of issuing social security payments via a card that has to be used on the necessities of life, will have universal support other than from a few far left civil libertarians.

I, for one, will be delighted to see the money which is so generously supplied by the government being used for food, shelter and other essentials.

It makes me sad to see children going hungry, when everyone in this country is supplied with enough cash to live a reasonable standard of life.

- Ann Morris, Maryborough
