As per an interview with the “Sunrise” show, around the 7:14 time stamp on the interview, our PM made some interesting comments about the “states” taking on more of a role with managing their own economies, saying “We want the states to more grown up adult governments”. If we look at the recent situation with gay marriage in the ACT, it can be nothing further from the truth, when Mr. Abbot overturned our state rights because the Commonwealth knows best. If the right for two men or two women is of such importance that Federal Government must intercede, then what of the local economies, the local schools who may not teach of evolution? He has stepped over that very thin line. [I am also personally swayed against same sex partnerships, but only as a personal opinion. When they make it a law that I can see in some respects is an injustice, I would swing the other way]. Apart from the rest of the BS laid down yesterday, what do you guys think about this hypocrisy?
Then he goes on to talk about how the Carbon tax repeal will save families $520 per year. That’s a pittance compared to the $2600 he reaps from families losing FTB part B, forcing more mothers into work while trying to figure out how to pay for before and after school care, at the same time as all the newly unemployed, newly sacked public servants and disability pensioners are forced into job seeking with ever climbing unemployment figures that reflect the lack of consumer confidence, considering we all have to tighten our belts. Gasp! I am glad I got that out of my system. Can anyone here tell me I’m wrong?
