TRICKY TURNBULL KEEPS PENSION CUTS ON THE TABLE

More cuts to the pension are well and truly on the table, with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull refusing to rule out further changes this morning.

NEIL MITCHELL:

Okay. Changes to pensions on the table?

PRIME MINISTER:

I'm not going to canvass the contents of the Budget.

NEIL MITCHELL:

Oh, that's Budget as well?

PRIME MINISTER:

It is, well, of course it’s Budget, you know it's Budget.

NEIL MITCHELL:

Well, if it wasn't on the table, it wouldn't be in the Budget.

Pensioners don’t need Malcolm Turnbull’s tricky spin – they just need a straight answer.

Will he make further cuts to the pension – yes or no?

Why won’t Mr Turnbull give a straight answer? What is he hiding from Australian pensioners?

Australian pensioners have been public enemy number one for this Government, and it looks like there is more pain on the way.

Labor will keep standing up for pensioners against Malcolm Turnbull’s attacks on their cost of living.

While Labor puts pensioners first, Malcolm Turnbull and the Liberals put them last.
