Bud­get dis­grace

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

AT THE risk of re­peat­ing my­self, I am sick to death of the gov­ern­ment’s bro­ken record. Sit­ting here lis­ten­ing to the bud­get I was not sur­prised no men­tion was made of the pathol­ogy cuts from July 1. Do they re­alise that many peo­ple who have worked a life­time and are now old and strug­gling with se­ri­ous health is­sues are now re­ally stressed won­der­ing how they can now af­ford the rel­e­vant tests. I’ll end by giv­ing some ad­vice – if you are short of money, let all you politi­cians wait un­til you are 67 to get a pen­sion. Also let your pen­sion be the same as ev­ery­body else. The days of en­ti­tle­ments are over so why should Mr Hockey be earn­ing more than $300,000 and is only get­ting a part of his pen­sion, a mere $90,000, which is more than four times the amount of what the rest of us poor sods sur­vive on per year. It’s a dis­grace! L.C. Merry Innes Park
