Part report from labour

Post by grandduke » 24 Mar 2020, 19:04

Tony Burke sends out a monthly report on parliamentary business things
the media do not report on.
11.07am - Jim Chalmers responds and calls today a “defining test for our country and its leaders, and a test for our people and their parliament”. He then points out some of the key problems with the bills, including that the Coronavirus supplement will not begin until 27 April 2020; expanded access to the Jobseeker Payment and Youth Allowance won't begin until 27 April 2020; most people won't receive the first payment to households until April 2020 or the second payment until July 2020; pensioners won't see a boost in their income due to the change in deeming rates until 1 May 2020; and employers won't receive a cash flow boost until 28 April 2020.

This is the liberal party all over never anything on a now basis always out there
in the distant future. :hitting_wall

This is "good" for them. They usually put things off for a few years.
It's not designed to help people, but to make the Liberals LOOK GOOD!

I haven't forgotten the $2 billion bushfire relief fund which has yet to appear. Ask those made homeless by the fires. They're quite bitter about it.

All they have to do is vote this mob out of office at the next election
however it could be before then if the economy goes south. :character-oldtimer:
