Social Services Minister Scott Morrison has taken aim at the Greens for voicing their opposition to a planned trial of cashless welfare cards.
The cards, which the Government plans to trial in a number of locations by the end of this year, will not be able to be used on alcohol or gambling.
Greens leader Christine Milne has since labelled the idea offensive to those on welfare.
Tom Elliott asked Mr Morrison if he thought they'd change their mind.
"I don't have a high level of expectation about the Greens doing anything sensible," he said on 3AW Drive.
"They can get all indignant about this sort of thing and get the on the high horse and spout out the rhetoric but that's not going to help a family that is struggling with issues of addiction," he said.
