In 2014 the Abbott Government attempted a ‘budget repair job’. Creating a budget emergency they targeted the poor, the elderly and the disabled to deliver an ideologically-driven attack on the Fair Go - a budget considered to be the worst in decades. The Australian people responded to this budget - and the blatant breaking of election promises - by taking to the streets in the tens of thousands.
With many of the budget measures failing to make it through the Senate, the Abbott Government has promised to deliver a “dull and routine” budget this year. But with falling iron-ore prices, pathetic attempts to chase corporate tax dodgers, and promises of a “families package” and an end to public service cuts, the Australian people are left not knowing what’s to come.
