LABOR WILL OPPOSE FREEZES ON FAMILY TAX BENEFIT RATES

May 27, 2014


The Federal Labor Opposition will oppose Tony Abbott’s attempts to freeze the rates for Family Tax Benefits.

A freeze on the rates of Family Tax Benefits is an attack on the standard of living of families on low and middle incomes. 

Labor will stand up for low and middle income families and oppose this cruel measure. 

Many of the hardest hit families are already struggling to make ends meet. They are already cutting back. They can’t afford Tony Abbott’s new taxes and broken promises.

In addition to having their family payments cut, families will lose their Schoolkids Bonus at the same time as they are slugged with new taxes when they visit the GP and when they fill up the car. 

Because of Tony Abbott, a single income family on $65,000 with two children aged 8 and 14 is going to lose over $6,000 per year by 2016.

Labor will oppose Tony Abbott’s attempts to put more pressure on the budgets of low income families.

Low and middle income families shouldn’t have to foot the bill for Tony Abbott’s lies.
