    I'm not being rude. It's just incredibly frustrating when people don't read other people's posts.

    Anyway, I'm going to put up the em icon now of me riding out on my horse waving.

    Haha at doctors being rich especially when they work for QLD health! They just don't get paid

    Sorry not really adding to the discussion at all! But that was the first thought that came to my mind when seeing doctors on the 'rich list'.

    Default Abbott to axe school bonus if he gets in

    Someone banging their head towards anything I say is rude, it's a rude gesture and ill be the judge of what I find rude towards me.

    You both have picked at my posts yet I don't see you doing it to anyone else that's basically saying the same thing. So don't be rude and bang your head towards me again, move on if you can't handle what I think.

    I don't think it is just the high income earners who get slammed. Welfare recipients get slammed too, so you are definitely right, you can't win.

    Pity we live in a capitalist society, and that isn't going to change.
    My husband is in this tax bracket and I don't consider ourselves rich or nasty. Yes we are comfortable and I am very very thankful for that. He's worked hard over the years to get where he is. Started as an apprentice earning $150 a week, worked 80+ hrs pw and had no life in his late 20's.
    I am on leave now and do not need to go back to work but I will when my baby is older.
    I'm not saying I agree with the cuts. In fact as a primary school teacher I don't agree with them at all. I just get a bit sick of being judged for being "rich"

    KellyMac I don't judge you, nor do I think you're rich. Next time there is a thread on welfare such as single parenting payment maybe check it out, you will realise the judgement on those "rich" people is quite tame really

    No one is judging rich people. They are commenting on semi to wealthy members who want to cut pretty much all assistance to low income earners. If you don't fit that category, then it doesn't apply to you.
