March-in-May-Bust-The-Budget

The Abbott Truss Government has broken a plethora of election promises in #Budget2014, resulting in picking a fight with a whole cross section of the community.
The people are angry and they are marching, again. #MarchInMay is people power demanding a #FairGoJoe and protesting against government decisions that are against the national interest and well-being of our nation. 

Abbott himself said: “I think there will be a people’s revolt against this tax”. He has now introduced three of them: GP Tax, Debt Tax and Fuel Excise Tax.

Maintain the rage. Bust the Budget.

The conservatives are back in charge, @DrCraigEmerson comments on brutal #budget2014

  If ever there were any doubts about the difference in values between conservative and progressive Australian governments they were laid to rest by the Abbott Government’s first Budget. It was the pernicious embodiment of conservative philosophy: treat the poor and vulnerable as malingerers while going easy on wealthy backers; and, in order to maintain […]
