What they have in common is adding the expense of a profit margin needing to be skimmed between the taxpayer, the actual care provider and the client.

We’ve seen this movie before with every government service that has been privatised/outsourced/flogged off to the for-profit sector, from tertiary education to aged care to employment services to child care.

And now the NDIS.
