    Small businesses are doing great and working parents too - if they aren't expecting another one.

    Would you care to elaborate? What financial success are you referring too?
    Truly curious.

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 disagree. But that's ok I think Joe Hockey is out of touch. He made some ridiculous comments around the time of the budget last year. He's been relatively quiet this year, even to the point where Scott Morrison was promoting the families package on tv.

    Joe Hockey lives in the wealthiest electorate in Australia. He has no idea what it's like for every day Australians

    I think SAHMs who earn a family income of under 65k get 85% of child care subsidised - so I could put my kids in care for 1 day for around $15 (which I wont be doing, but good for mums who need it). Im glad that there is funding for drought affected farmers, i think it is more than neccesary in this country, we always seem to put the needs of our farmers last, & they are the backbone of the country. (I come from a farming family though, so am very biased!) And sadly,the spending on security is very neccessary.

    I was a bit annoyed about the anti terrorism budget. Where is the budget for the war on domestic violence? Last I checked, 34 women have died this year from domestic violence. Yet no mention of funding to combat this.

    Families with incomes of around $65,000 or less in 2017‑18, who do not meet the activity test, will be eligible to receive up to 24 hours subsidised care per fortnight under the Child Care Safety Net.

    I think that's the first time I've seen those words used to describe Hockey!
