After the first and hopefully las Budget of the Abbott Government I think all Australians can obviously see that they were deceived in the pre election campaign! Every promise has been broken and every policy has been exposed ! That was not a fair budget, that was a nasty budget , stealing from the poor and giving to the rich ! The real pain is one sided ! And by Hockey's own admission this is only the beginning ! If you agree then call and voice your opinion to your own local Labor representative and let them know how you feel ! I am so itching for another shot at a vote are you !

Has Labor learnt that they canít run up a huge deficit?

If they get back in power at the next election, will they work towards reducing the deficit or just continue to increase it?

If they did try to reduce it, would they shift the costs of doing this significantly toward the rich and away from the poor?

I canít see that they would. Afterall, they are in bed with big business and the whole wealthy end of town. I canít see that they are the slightest bit better than the Coalition in that regard.

And we know that they wouldnít significantly reduce the immigration rate, which is the biggest factor that no one talks about when it comes to the budget. Immigration demands massive government expenditure.

Massive immigration = massive need for new infrastructure and upgraded older infrastructure = massive part of the budget expenditure.

But the big end of town demands very high immigration. So neither Labor nor Coalition is going to touch it.

Weíre being diddled by the current government, but I canít see that it would be significantly different with the other mob in power.

We need to make government vastly more independent of the all-powerful big-business profit motive, which currently has it by the balls.

Until we do that we are just simply not going to get the budget back on track. Nor are we going to get the rich to pay their fair share and keep the pain for the poor to a minimum in any attempt to do so.

Trapdican,
Do you want a Labor government again? After the fiasco of the last 6 years that would be a disaster, unless you can show they have changed and will work to reducing the debt they ran up.

The pink batts commission is showing just how incompetent labor was, then add on all the other failed schemes as well. Only a lunatic would want them back.

Sure a DD election might give a Senate majority, and may not, but a Labor win would take us from the pan to the fire. I am not happy with aspects of the budget either, but at least the LNP are reducing the spending which has to be.

You should give them credit for stopping the boats, a huge saving.

Ludwig,
Quite right. Both major parties pander to business because that is who gives major donations and business wants high migration. Can you get any figures on what immigration actually costs us.

trapdiocan, personally, I would live to see another spend thrift government, like the previous two labor gave us, but, realistically, my kids, their kids and their kids kids would be the ones paying for it.

The bottom line is, you simply CAN NOT support a situation whereby your revenue can't repay your debt.

My solution would be a more efficient tax system, one that taxes money, not people.

My fear is that a DD election will simply send us back to the bottleneck we had after the 2010 fiasco.

But, if you seriously think labor deserves another shot, then perhaps rather than just contacting your local rep, you should be requesting policies, because apart from spin, last nights budget reply provided no vision.
