Twisted Priorities

Tony Abbott said time and time again before the election that he wouldn’t change the pension. This week we found out that is exactly what he is planning to do. 

It just goes to show the twisted priorities of the Prime Minister and his government – Tony Abbott wants to pay millionaire mums $75,000 to have a baby, but wants to cut the payments of about 2.3 million age pensioners.

It simply leaves me asking: Why are the priorities of this Prime Minister so twisted? Why are the people who can least afford it the first to cop it, and the people who can most afford it the first to get a top up?

We need to tell Tony Abbott that Australians don’t support changes to the pension. Can you watch and share this message from June, an aged pensioner, who thinks the Prime Minister’s priorities are all wrong?

At the last election, Tony Abbott promised our pensioners he would not cut their pensions – he is now betraying the trust of pensioners who took him at his word.

Watch and share this video from June and help us spread the message.

I don’t support the Prime Minister's cuts to the Age Pension and Labor will oppose these cuts every step of the way.

Together we can spread the word on Tony Abbott’s twisted priorities. Thanks for helping to play your part.
