he came back to me a few days later saying that wasn't the case and that if I qualified I would still get the same amount as a minimum.
unaure if its the same situation for you, but with having a look at just in case

I'm worried about the childcare reform. I understand their aim is to make it more affordable to parents but feel like childcare workers will suffer for this. My centre got approved for part of the $300mil but as payments haven't started yet then we probably won't get it. Higher ratios also worry me, I was really looking forward to lower ratios down the track so I could spend more individual time with children.

I'm not happy about issues like stopping boats,no same sex marriage and him as a person creeps me.
How do people on higher combined incomes and small businesses benefit (that's us ATM (small business). Our income will only be higher if I return to work full time though.

NBN is a big one for us as its what DH does for a living! So will wait and see but at this point everyone is bracing for the worst.

We benefit because big business benefits. As lawyers working for large corporations, the better they do the more work we get. Also if they bring back the phi rebate we'll be much better off (we get zero currently).
Personally I think bringing back the phi rebate is a huge mistake.

I'm worried about the Lib economic-growth-at-all-costs view especially regarding delicate environmental balance - as a PP mentioned, old growth forests in Tas especially. Libs have promised the world to Tasmanians, who have seen jobs losses through the forest industry scaling back. Surely we can encourage some progressive growth that doesn't involve the slash and burn of yesteryear.
Totally sceptical on carbon tax being cut - why would business pass on savings? Started another thread on that one...
Abbot does not see women as equal to men. That in itself is a worry. Ok, so I doubt any leader has truly been a feminist but most would be mindful enough to not advertise it when they open their mouths.
Reading through the Liberal policies they are all talk on the savings they will make, yet hesitant to advertise where the cuts will come from and that is concerning.

My main issues are the NBN, approach to climate change, parental leave scheme and the negative campaign over the past 3 years. All issues where the LNP seems to be lacking any kind of evidence-based policy or approach. It makes me so angry when they can pass something off as being beneficial in a particular way when it's simply factually untrue.

I feel things like winding back the carbon tax and replacing it with direct action is ridiculous -paying big polluters not to pollute in the course of making money flies in the face of reason; media Blackouts on asylum seeker boat arrivals prevent - so basically of we don't know how many boats are being turned around, we can't know how many people are dying as a result and they can report anything and we have no choice but to believe it; the nbn is an important project which will deliver technology that would help many - think remote medical conferencing etc for patients in remote areas (Yes, I know this already happens but if it can happen better an more reliably it will deliver better care); paid parental leave would be better paid at a more modest level and that money put into better quality childcare (staffing, availability etc) so that when all patents have to return to work they have good quality care to rely upon. The lnp sat on costings for so long and released it after the media blackout. I feel that they are hiding things and add to that the murdoch press being so biased makes me feel that they can't be trusted.
