    Your family is mistaken.

    Well someone did. A lot of people obviously did. And look.
    Not a go at you but I personally didn't vote for Toby Abbott as I don't live in his electorate but (please don't hate on me!) yes I did vote liberal in my electorate for my liberal candidate and I am in one of the most marginal seats (0.9% I think) so my vote counted I would say. Why? He is the best person for our electorate and I am in a lower socio economic area. I imagine quite a few people vote like this...

    I know a few people who work for liberal members and they do not like tony Abbott however they are on a state liberal level so have no choice. And I mean they realllly dislike him, it's funny and weird to watch them speak about TA 😕

    It's funny to see how quickly ppl will jump on u for saying that u voted for Abbott and agree with the budget. I don't need to explain myself to any of u and I won't be!

    Labor.. Not Labour..
    ( pet hate)

    They didn't cause the debt. We went through a global economy crisis and came out ok..
    Compared to most of the world.
    Please go to Europe and tell them that a political party is responsible for our small ( compared to some) debt and they will laugh in our faces.

    Google the world debt comparison and then tell me we are in trouble.

    That's good. I'm glad you can stand by your choice. I don't intend on offending those who did. But no one around me says they did. I am aware they would probably lie if they did due to the popular opinion.

    I understand why too. Some of what he said was ok. But this is not.

    But this budget is in some ways worse than debt.
    You see the richer will be rich.
    The poorer will be poor.
    The middle group who struggled to get to the middle get to go back to being poor.

    Increase the costs of medicine. And also charge to see a doctor. Mark my words are sickness rises and hospitals get over run. Some people can barely afford the medicines. Now it'll be pay for the doctor, the paper he writes on and the medicine. Some people won't bother altogether. I know of people like that. A free trip to the doctor fine. Pay for it. Get stuffed. Who suffers? Maybe their kid. Disgusting. It will happen though.

    FTB part B wont change for people already receiving it until 1st july 2017. If you want to know exactly how the centrelink side of the changes will affect you go to www.humanservices.gov.au and check the alphabetical listing there. Some family tax stuff will be grandfathered for a while.

    You can vote for whomever you chose - I don't think anyone is jumping on you for that. The question that's been put to you is down to the reasoning for voted for the LNP. You implied you voted for LNP because of the large debt Australia has. The thing is, we don't have a large debt in comparison to other countries - so your reasoning is flawed.
