    How does the budget effect a single mum who doesn't work ? Is the payment still the same ?

    Liberal Party = betray all, RIP...

    Well, it's betray some, but then it's not an anagram, is it?

    Mine are the same price for a commerce degree.

    Your FTB part B is scrapped when your youngest is 8, that on top of losing your PPS and being forced on to the dole will most likely leave you financially screwed.
    Going to the GP, emergency, having a blood test, xray, etc. Will cost $7 and obviously rise in the future. Medicine will also cost you more.

    Fuel prices are set to increase which will have a devastating flow on effect. Grocery prices will soar, all goods and services will really. Everything will cost more.

    Don't dare to try and better yourself through higher education as that is now set to become unaffordable for anyone not born into money.

    In a nutshell, single parents are just one of the many subsections of the population to suffer immensely as a result of this budget. The future is definitely bleak!

Without a clear mandate, the current Australian Federal Parliament needs to be dissolved by double dissolution and another election held so that a new parliament can be formed.

    From the above article: OMG the man is a complete utter ****en ********!!!

    “I don’t believe that they will try and completely frustrate the business of government because if there was an election again, hardly any of them would win their seats,’’ the Prime Minister told Sydney radio 2GB.
    Mr Abbott was optimistic the Government could persuade minor party senators to support its reforms.

    Petitions won't sway the pollies unless you get a significant number in the millions

    Labor won't forced a double dissolution ever since the kuffel with Whitlam

    The States will go to a COAG and GST will be increased to 12%

    If you're a single mum and want to study in future, forget it. It's difficult enough now, but it will be impossible in future, unless you're a rich single mum.

    Tony would rather that all us single mums know that we have no hope on our own and find a nice Christian average joe instead, rather than help us support ourselves in future.
