My thoughts on the Commission of Audit recommendations

CEO Social Justice Blog

I am opposed to most of the recommendations which involve cutting services or reducing income of people in receipt of Centrelink benefits. I am totally opposed to proposed slowdown in roll out of NDIS.

I’m also totally opposed to compulsory relocation of unemployed young people under threat of losing their benefits. Unemployed people need opportunity and traveling around the country is not necessarily a good idea because of the national shortage of affordable housing. No jobs in a new town means often nowhere affordable to live so homelessness then increases.

We need restore income tax levels to what they were 10 years ago and there would be no need for expenditure cuts. Also, what about eliminating tax rorts for the wealthy as a way to increase govt income?
