    Cause I am home by myself, can someone answer a really, really silly question?

    For this budget to apply do all of its components need to pass through the senate? Or can the government just implement what it wants?

    well, I'm going to have to thrown in uni, as does DH. Good one Liberals, you've now completely financially ruined the poorest people in Australia

    Expect to see massive drop off rates for mature age at uni, homelessness, children being removed from loving homes bc parents can't feed them.

    yep 2016. I only just started this semester, so no way I'd be able to finish before 2016 and I'm part time - on account of having 4 young kids - waaahh! 3 with chronic health issues + plus me. Wahhh!
