Amazing what lengths the government went to to get their "surplus" on paper.
What a joke!
I missed that the pension cards go with the loss of PPS. So basically the carbon tax offsets etc get cancelled out by everything else you lose.
Shame Julia and Wayne
Yes, they get a health care card instead, that is why I didn't put discounted PBS medications on that list.
Strangely, I was sent a health care card after going onto Newstart but then also sent another pension card. Guess which one I use
the budget is weird.
Its like it was not thought out properly..kind of looks good and then you scratch the surface and...yuck.
It hurts us in quite a few ways. Super, small business...but its not god awful.
The 6 week overseas rule is something I agree with 100%!
My sister collects a pension and takes off to bali for 3 months where she drinks and takes drugs and lies in the sun all day on benefits!...that is just off.
