“Before the election the Prime Minister promised no cuts to health, no cuts to education, and no changes to the pension.”

“Before the election the Prime Minister promised no new taxes and no tax increases.”

“Tony Abbott’s Budget means families will pay every time they see the doctor and pay more every time they fill up the family car.”

“Before the election the Prime Minister promised no change to pensions,” said Ms Butler

“In his first Budget, Tony Abbott is cutting pensions and will force Australians to work longer.”

“Pensioners in our community are already just trying to keep their head above water.”

“Pensioners and families in Griffith will pay for Tony Abbott’s Budget of broken promises.”
