Tony Abbott promised before the election that he would reduce cost-of-living pressures. Instead a single income family earning $65,000 with two kids will be around $6,000 worse off. Abbott’s and Hockey’s toxic budget continues to cause havoc for Australian families and battlers.
This includes a $3.5 billion new GP tax found on page 133 of the budget papers. The $3.5 billion GP tax all of which is not being invested back into health care.
Australian families have to pay for the Prime Minister’s $1 billion in cuts to childcare assistance while spending over $20 billion on his rolled gold Paid Parental Leave scheme.
The attack on single-income families earning $65,000 a year with two children will also includes a $1.9 billion cut to family tax benefit B, found on page 198 of the budget papers. Once again Australian families have to pay for this Prime Minister’s dishonesty.
Single-income families with two children will be worse off because of the Prime Minister’s broken promises on the GP tax, the petrol tax, family payments and cost of living.
No matter what the Prime Minister says this week, all Australians will be paying because of the Prime Minister’s broken promises on the GP tax, the petrol tax, family payment cuts and the cost of living.
