They're probably too ashamed to!
Not sure if anyone realizes but the massive debt, according to the libs started 5 years ago, if we all count back, when does that take us to? The GFC, which was not caused by the people, but the subsequent spending was to stimulate the economy and it did, we didn't see as many adverse effects as other countries. Just sayin'.... It was a necessity to take these drastic and unfair cuts and many politicians and economists have said we aren't in a bad economic state. Much of what Joe Hockey said didn't make economic sense! Surprisingly, Clive Palmers comments in the budget did economically make sense
For the record, my family will only be negatively impacted by the fuel prices and Medicare co payment won't be an issue for us BUT, I can still see how bad this is and I felt sick and wanted to throw up at the negative impact this will have on so many people.
But then I knew NOTHING good would come of Tony Abbott being PM.
This is the first time in my life I actually feel sad to be an Australian.

Can anyone explain what the cuts to the dental scheme mean? I have tried looking online but can't seem to find more than a sentence about it. Are they talking about public dental hospitals, the kids dental scheme (the one were you take your kids to a private dentist and they can have up to $2000 of work over 2 years) or the kids school dental van? Or all of them? TIA

Thank you. In that case we will live to see another day.
I'm so sorry for all those people that this budget has affected so badly. So awful
It has thrown out any plans I had of having a 4th child which is really very dissapointing.

I just don't under how effectively privatising uni is going to save money? Can someone explain it to me? All that will happen is that the govt will have double the debt with HECS for everyone.
