The new federal government appears to be on a cost cutting, slash and burn mission! Seems they are focused on refugees, (they appear to have no understanding or connection on a human level, whatsoever), also carers – my neighbour who is the primary carer for her 95yr old, bedridden and dementia mother, has had her carers allowance cut in half! Now they are targetting new mothers (see below). There are many of us, who are normal, hard working Aussie’s who could, no doubt, find many ‘other’ government excesses, that could easily be cut, without affecting the core of human morality, kindness, compassion and understanding of the ‘bigger picture’. Why can’t they?
