I find it absolutely devastating that Julia Gillard is at the helm of a government that is capable of such evil. To not only cut the benefit in real dollar terms and thrust parents out into a largely non existent work-force but to take away the pension card and penalise a parent this is way is akin to abuse. Wont this affect the economy also by there being less money spent in the community? Can’t you balance the budget in a way that taxes those who can afford it? How many more families will be out on the street now because they can’t afford to eat because the rent is so high and the only way they eat is to work part time. If they be so lucky as to have a job, that is. How are they going to get to that job, to buy the food, to feed their children?
The true measure of a society is how it treats it’s vulnerable.
Having a healthy society now prepares us for a future healthy society, no wonder the world is going to wreck and ruin.
Labour Party you have truly lost your way and will not be getting any votes from me and I have voted for you all my life.
Is anyone protesting in the streets about this??
