Joe Hockey has today extended his harsh cuts to Australian families despite his first round of cuts having already been rejected by the Senate, and the Australian people.
This is a cruel Christmas present for Australian families.
It means families are set to lose a further $877.50 million on top of the more than $5.5 billion worth of cuts to families that were contained in the May Budget.
Australian families were left $6,000 a year worse off after the May Budget – now it’s even worse.
These cuts don’t just hurt families, they also hurt the economy.
Joe Hockey says his budget will act as a shock absorber for the Australian economy, but Australian families are bearing the brunt of Joe Hockey’s budget.
On the one hand, Joe Hockey wants Australian families to spend up this Christmas. On the other hand, he is cutting their payments.
This is bad for families, and bad for the economy.
