More Cuts to Disability Services

26 May 2014Sometimes I wonder if we should be really worried that the Liberal government is not trying to wipe out disabled people and their services.

I recently read a news article that more funding cuts were being made to the disability sector. The budget is getting rid of the ABCís ĎRamp Upí website thatís purpose is to write about disability issues.

Also to be abolished is the position of Disability Discrimination Commissioner that is currently being held by Graeme Innes.

Do you get the feeling that this is the start of something bigger? Wasnít there an eradication in 1939-1945 that got rid of a whole lot of people?

Why prey on the weak? The Liberals are a bunch of cowards led by motor mouth Joe Hockey!
