As for medicine well I am totally screwed. $5 might seem a lot but when you so many people on meds and some serval meds. It is going to be killer.

    With dental cuts I am unsure if dd will still get her operation and the pre and post care (over 2 years)


    I have a dd who lives on the other side of country. So if she lose her job. She a 12 mth lease at her flat. Etc... she just can't fly home and live with us. (as much as I would love her home).
    No new start at all for 25. What the he'll. She has never been on it. But no safety net at all. Just because of her age.

    Our crime rate is going to sky rocket.

    But where are those magical jobs coming from? Hockey said the budget will help strengthen the economy and create jobs. How exactly does the budget help achieve this? Massive cuts in health and education? What's the rationale there?

    Exactly. A healthcare system like America will see people going into serious debt and or dying because they can't pay their medical bills. If you all think it will stay at 7$ you're dreaming. Now there's a fee it will just go up And don't get me started about the petrol increase- they really love ****ing us don't they?

    Crime is more than likely going to hit an all time high. It'll become a dog eat dog scenario.

    About higher education becoming impossible for those not already rich
    Yes agree. The saddest part about this budget is that it represents the 'beginning of the end' of a number of things that make Australia great. The beginning of the end if Medicare, of affordable tertiary education for everyone, of family assistance, of assisting people who need it favour of a 'tough luck' attitude.... Shameful.

    But come on.... You have to admit that there is some connection between working and studying hard in your young days and higher incomes. When I was at highschool plenty of kids spent their time partying, stuffing around with their mates and not doing much school work at all. They got retail jobs (if any job at all) after highschool. Fast forward to now. Hell yeah most if them are atill stuck in lower income jobs and hell yeah those of us at school that pulled our finger out and studied/went onto further education (whether uni, tafe, a trade) generally live in the middle to higher income worlds. It's not always the case, but quite often it is a case of reaping what you sew.
    I agree, most employers expect someone in their late 20's onwards have either studied or gained experience from working full time.
    To be competitive you need to have valid experience.

    What's so wrong with young people either earning or learning? It may force crime but I argue that those people are morally corrupt anyway and just looking for excuses.

    The 100 odd kids from my graduating class ( in low socio economic area) every one of them that either studied or worked full time after school now are middle class, with stable lives.
    those that sat back and did nothing until their mid 20's are now finding they're not competitive in the workforce.

    They can jump up and down about it being unfair and will cry poor with this budget but at the end of the day whilst they were being government funded to drink and smoke up a storm the rest of us were turning our unfortunate situations around.

    Edit- unfortunately it doesn't help those already in the situation but it may make the next generation think about it

    If you only have 2k left more than likely no effect as you will have paid it off before the changes come into effect. Consider making voluntary payments and paying it off this fin year to save on more indexation though

    So if you make a few bad decisions in young adulthood you have no option?

    Too bad, so sad. Suck it up?
