I want to pay tribute today to an amazing woman who lives in my electorate. Her name is Wendy Dyckhoff and she was recently awarded the silver medal by the Kangan Batman TAFE college for her achievements in adult literacy and learning.
Before the election Tony Abbott said there would be no changes to pensions. After the election he is breaking his promise. He is now going to force you and hardworking families nationwide to retire at the age of 70. Haven’t people worked hard enough in a lifetime Tony? Don’t they have a right whilst still healthy and able to enjoy retirement, their families, grandchildren and community?
Tony Abbott is introducing a GP Tax – a tax you will have to pay every time you go to see the doctor. When it comes to healthcare, it should be your Medicare card, not your credit card that matters. The Abbott Government wants to make you pay a $15 dollar GP tax, a hospital tax and for more expensive medicines. Together we can save Medicare. Sign the petition to send a message to the Liberals: hands off our Medicare.
