Federal member for Hunter, Joel Fitzgibbon, said that Tony Abbott’s Commission of Audit is nothing more than a blueprint for the Government’s broken promises in the upcoming federal Budget.
“This is Tony Abbott’s plan to put up the taxes of families in Hunter,” Mr Fitzgibbon said.
“It’s his plan for cuts, instead of growth.”
“It’s his plan to increase the cost of living, and cut the services that local families rely on,” Mr Fitzgibbon said.
“It’s his plan to make sure your family gets less, while millionaires get more.”
“Tony Abbott will turn the most basic things in life - education, health care, support for older Australians, into a massive every day struggle for working families.”
“Taking just one measure from Mr Abbott’s blueprint, a $15 GP Tax will cost the people of Hunter more than $10 million every year,” Mr Fitzgibbon said.
“This report shows that hard-working families in Hunter will be hurt by Tony Abbott’s broken promises.”
“It shows how out of touch this Prime Minister is and how twisted his priorities are,” Mr Fitzgibbon said.
“Tough choices need to be made in all Budgets.”
“But Tony Abbott is making the wrong choices for our future.”
