    I'm just frustrated they are steering away from their ideologies and not providing support to their main voters. I don't see low, middle or high income earners winning with the proposed "family package"

    Default New Budget

It may mean that they require re-training when they rejoin that occupation. It's not writing people off or saying they aren't worthy - it's just stating a fact.

    I've just gone back to work after having nearly a year off with ds2 - so many things happened in my absence, people swapped jobs, teams added new functions, policy changed, I forgot how to use some of the tools and only 5 monthsish later am I starting to feel somewhat comfortable (doing the same job as I did before going on mat leave). I am not naive to the fact I needed additional training - I took the bull by the horns and organised it myself.
    Hold your breath VP. I agree with you.

    Edited my agreement with SOS out

    It was nothing more than vote grabbing. How hypocritical that now the Libs are trying to stop people from double dipping...wonder what staunch lib voters think of this... especially those who have double dipped themselves

    I am not a 'staunch lib voter'but i did vote liberal this time around (ducks for cover). I am going to get absolutely slaughtered for this, but i have been really happy with how this government has worked financially. One main drawcard for voting lib was joe hockey -i think he generally comes across as very sensible and balanced. I was not expecting,nor wanting the PPL scheme to go through - sorry, but it was completely unrealistic &unbalanced, & the liberal party knew it wouldnt go ahead, as PP said,they could then blame everyone else. I might have to sleep with a baseball bat underneath my pilloq now that Ive said it on BH lol,I am going to get shot down to chinatown

    agree. SAHM's are getting scr*wed, so are working mums, low middle and high income. Basically everyone.
