When does this all go through the senate? I want to cry every time I hear these stories. People are already struggling so much and these changes if they go through, are truly horrifying. I cant even begin to imagine the hardship. I almost shed a tear every day when I think of these struggling families and the direction this country is heading

No seriously, I have never been so saddened by Australia's politics. Waahh!

With almost 50% of marriages ending in divorce and women still being the main care givers after marraige, you think all of these women are lazy?
Moving isnt so easy, I have court orders in place for my son. I can't leave. And for many to leave their area, costs money, and could isolate them and remove them from supports that actually enable them to work.
Many unexpected things happen in life and at all different stages. Some are lucky as they are very financially secure and can weather it better. Some despite being secure financially, quickly lies that security just trying to survive.
I also don't know why you wouldn't want to have empathy for others. It just means you are unwilling to see anything but your own POV. To me that's pretty sad.

Did anyone else read this letter to Joe Hockey? 'What $7 means to me'
The Mum who wrote it has done an amazing job to get out of a terrible situation, and still has a great deal of understanding and empathy for those who are in situations like she was.
It was great to see her take the time to share her story and approach Joe Hockey, rather than just saying "I managed to better myself, so should everyone else".

Thank you for allowing the Mods time to clean and re-open this informative thread so to that end, may we respectfully ask that the thread remain on topic and free from posts which are deemed 'not in the spirit of Bubhub'.
Many members have gained a lot of insight from this thread and therefore it would be a shame to have it permanently closed. Cheers.

Thanks mods! I for one have learned a lot from this thread (and many others on bub hub). Can I open it up again and ask if anyone knows when this goes to the senate and what needs to happen to force a double dissolution election?
