ACTU – Stop the Turnbull Cuts

Malcolm Turnbull is telling people with disabilities they cannot have the support they need unless other Australians suffer devastating cuts to the their incomes.

Turnbull is trying to pit Australians against each other; playing off people with disabilities against pensioners, the unemployed, students and new families. He’s threatning these dreadful cuts so he can pay for his corporate tax handout to major corporations.

Australians are better than this. We can’t let Turnbull turn us against each other with threats to pick on one group or another.

Nick Xenophon, Derryn Hinch and One Nation can either let this go on – or stop these callous funding cuts and keep this country fair.

Tell the crossbenchers to Stop Malcolm’s Cuts.

This is a horrible divide and conquer trick – but it won’t work if we stand together. There are key times in a bad Government’s life where our reaction will determine how things go – we have to stay united.

Show we believe in a fair go for everyone in Australia – sign now:

Millions of people, mostly those who can least afford it will be hurt: families with children, pensioners and new parents. Students and young people will lose almost $100 a fortnight after the Liberals kick them off Newstart on to the much smaller Youth Allowance.

Turnbull and Scott Morrison say these cuts are needed – but the reality is that the Liberals just want to fund massive tax breaks for wealthy corporations, many of whom don’t pay their fair share of tax anyway. If they did the government would have the money to fund our community properly.

Our government and Senators should be siding with families, parents, pensioners and young people – not pitting us against each other to fund a $50 billion corporate handout.

Tell Nick Xenophon, Derryn Hinch and Pauline Hanson to stand with the people and Stop Malcolm’s Cuts
