Government Wants To Cut Disability Pension To Rebuild QLD Following Floods15 Feb 2011
Something that has been reported on in the news all around the world recently, is the disaster and devastation that has been left behind from the floods in North Queensland.
As much as I feel for all of the flood victims in QLD, I absolutely disagree with the Business Council of Australia saying that Disability Pensions should be cut to help pay for the rebuilding of QLD!
Why don't we start by cutting payments to those who are on the dole and refuse to do get off their butt to get a job, or criminals who get to live like kings in their comfy Australian jail cells, while many people with disabilities
are living in unsuitable housing because there is not enough assistance???
So frustrating when there are still people in 2011, who hold positions of power and think this way! People with disabilities
need to be made a priority, so they can grow and give what they can to society.
As is stated further into the article, we need to focus on making more businesses disabled
friendly, so more people on the disability
pension who are able to work, can.

Let me know what you think, and what the Government should be price cutting before the Disability Pension.
