This particular government (using it as an example because it's current, not because it's unique) has broken core election promises. So *this* government is not necessarily the one that many Australians 'voted in'.
And the old 'we'll vote them out then' is not enough of a comfort for people whose lives will change immeasurably very soon. I am happy for you that you aren't going to be hurt by the budget, and tbh I can't really see that I am going to be either, but I think it's important to acknowledge that there are many, many people out there living on the bones of their bum as it is that will be significantly worse off.
That's without getting into foreign aid, 'border security', climate change etc.
Hopefully all the money going towards research will find a cure for uncompassionateitis - commonly found in people who live in a "i dont have any experience in something so i'll practically rejoice in their hardship" fantasyland
