By John Mikkelsen, published 23/5/2024

Luca, 2, was born in Australia but isn't a citizen, and the government says the potential cost of his treatment is too much for taxpayers to bear.

Sad. Buy we should not change the rules if we don't want a flood of this sort of thing.

So true ttbn.

If Australia doesn't watch it we might become a funder of first choice for Massive Medical Costs Refugees.

I wonder how much tax the author would be paying for such cases, or is the author a pensioner?

If a kid is born in Australia and has lived here for two years, he's an Aussie in my book.. And if his parents were Palestinian, or illegal refugees, or same sex, or trans, you would hear the left wokies screaming from the rooftop. I also don't think you read that they don't even know if little Luca is compatible with the drug treatment - different strains of CF aren't compatible. Also the way this government forks out funds to private projects that will likely never get off the ground, the cost of CF treatment is a drop in the bucket. And 36,000 extra public servants? I'd sooner keep little Luca than a tenth of them which would cost more anyway.

$1.8 million over 10 years, IF the drug is even suitable for his strain of CF - not all sufferers are compatible. $450 million down the gurgler over a botched referendum which only heightened racial divisions AND "The Government has announced an additional 36,000 public servants in this Budget costing Australian taxpayers $24 billion over four years."

Here is James Macpherson on Sky News - what hope does little Luca have unless his parents claim they play the didgeridoo and take part in smoking ceremonies!

Why doesn't the author, or the parents, family, and friends, of
Aussie Luca set up a fund for him and ask people for donations?
The money collected could give Luca a start.

It would be a start. And at least then the parents could find
out more about whether the drug does help.

In the meantime - this case could use more publicity
to attract government attention and those of the politicians.
