Lambie counter’s Labor lies re: Injured Veterans’ Children Payments, School Kid’s Bonuses, Low Income Super Contribution and Income Support Bonuses

 

The Labor party feels a little bit irrelevant.

 

So for pure political gain and to cause mischief, the Labor Party has raised unnecessary alarm and spread some nasty lies about the loss of Injured Veterans’ Children Payments, School Kid’s Bonuses, Low Income Super Contribution and Income Support Bonuses. It’s now time the facts were heard about these family payments.

 

Last week Palmer United Senators struck a compromise and voted for legislation, that not only abolished the hated mining tax, boosted our economy and created jobs - but we also stopped Tony Abbott from taking the axe to those important family payments for the life of this parliament.

 

PUP Senators ensured that the loss of these important family payments won’t be - as planned by the Liberals - in Joe Hockey’s next 2 budgets. This important federal government assistance totaling $6.5B will continue to be received by the orphans of Veterans / badly wounded soldiers and ordinary Tasmanian / Australian families who are struggling.

 

In fact the decision on whether these payments will be axed, thanks to PUP, is now in the hands of the Australian people. PUP will take to the next election a policy, which will guarantee those payments continue to those needy souls.

 

The Australian people can decide to elect politicians to parliament who will protect these government entitlements or not. It’s time Mr. Shorten, indeed all federal politicians, stopped their silly political games and misinformation.

 

Each federal politician from the Liberal, National, Labor and Greens parties must say now, whether they will adopt the Palmer United Policy and continue these payments - (Injured Veterans’ Children Payments, School Kid’s Bonuses, Low Income Super Contribution and Income Support Bonuses) after the next federal election.

 

Senator Jacqui Lambie
