Min­is­ters’ ac­tions dis­gust pen­sioner

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

AS an age pen­sioner barely sur­viv­ing on just over $20,000 a year, I am an­gry and dis­gusted at Fed­eral min­is­ters squan­der­ing my an­nual pen­sion many times over on fancy meals, ex­or­bi­tant travel and un­jus­ti­fi­able jaunts.

The Libs com­plain about pen­sion­ers who built this coun­try. It is not as though suc­ces­sive gov­ern­ments have not known for more than 40 years that peo­ple were age­ing, and they should have been more ded­i­cated to put the sup­port sys­tem in place.

It is ironic that the Lib­er­als were gen­er­ally the ones op­pos­ing su­per de­duc­tions, and now they have the gall to com­plain about the re­sult.

I can't for the life of me fathom how they think they can jus­tify spend­ing the amounts they do on so-called en­ti­tle­ments.

This Gov­ern­ment has been an ab­ject fail­ure. Based on their prom­ises and if con­sumer law ap­plied, we should be en­ti­tled to a re­fund of our votes. Name and ad­dress
