Call me unpatriotic but I lack empathy for Australians, yes it's a tough budget but we have SO many opportunities here, many just choose not to follow. There are literally millions of people in the world that would love to be here even under the proposed changes.
Wake up and realise that despite the proposed changes we still have so much more than the majority of the world. Yes some other countries do it better but MANY do it a lot worse and don't offer anything. Put it in a real world perspective, or are you all being too selfish and bitter to realise what's going on outside your own bubble.
Stones in glass houses ...
I haven't read the entire budget report yet but from what I've seen here and on FB there is very little joy in it for me.
I will admit that keeping fuel rebates in farming pleases me, as does extra funding into animal and plant bio security.
The cuts to ftb b won't impact us if we both keep working but the medical charge will.
It's long term I worry about on a personal basis, things like education will really impact on us.
And much as most of what I've read so far doesn't have a big impact on my family I know lots of people that it will hurt. I just hope that this isn't the beginning of the end.
Australia is heading the way of UK & USA. Why I dont know as neither country has gotten thru the GFC very well.
If we want to emulate another country it needs to be as other posters have pointed out Sweden, Denmark, Finland.
Seriously its not rocket science. Google those countries and their health, tax, welfare, school systems. Trust me if you arent ashamed of this new budget you will be after you read up on those countries
