Before the election, Tony Abbott said he would ‘reduce cost-of-living pressures and help families with the real costs of raising children’.
He also said that he would deliver his signature paid parental leave scheme.
We now know that he lied.
Tony Abbott’s unfair Budget contains more than $5.5 billion worth of cuts to family payments, and a further $1 billion worth of cuts to childcare.
This first Liberal-National Government budget will leave families as much as $6,000 a year worse off.
Now Tony Abbott wants us to believe that he will make families ‘front and centre’ of the Government’s agenda in 2015.
If Tony Abbott is serious, he needs to reverse these cuts immediately.
That’s why today Kate Ellis and I are launching our new campaign against Tony Abbott’s cuts to families and child care.
We believe it’s time to tell Tony Abbott that Australian families deserve more than just cuts.
Can you add your name to our petition and stand with us against these cuts today?
Labor has a proud record of standing up for Australian families. And right now, Australian families need Labor more than ever.
Labor will never stop fighting for Australian families. Not now. Not ever. Join us now and stand up against Tony Abbott’s cuts to families.
Shadow Minister for Families and Payments
