    Q: What are your thoughts on the Budget?
    A: It is disappointing for me in that it does not put forward a plan to reduce the deficit, address housing affordability, public transport or climate change, and provides no plan for the future. I would be happy to forgo tax cuts and minor trimming to public services for a balanced budget, but not for the maintenance of middle class welfare, corporate tax avoidance and increase in defence spending.

    Q: What are your thoughts on the Budget?
    A: I feel that the budget was too fair on the very well off and did not give any thought or consideration to families and others that are struggling to pay the bills and put food on the table.

    Further more, the budget did not provide any funding for infrastructure projects which are vital to the country’s future.

    A: I would be happy to not receive the small tax cut for people earning 80k and instead have these funds directed towards investing in education and health.

    A: We work very hard all our life to make sure that we are self sufficient at retirement instead of relying on government hand out. We just want to live a comfortable and relaxed life style without having to worry about money problem and inflations. Looking at the high cost of living in Australia in particular in Sydney, the life time cap on concessional contribution of $500,000 to our super for the whole life is simply not sufficient to support a retired person for his entire retirement when more people live to their 90’s. Most Australians have to struggle to cope with their huge home mortgage just to have a roof over their head instead of relying on the inadequate public housing . Many are not able to start to sacrifice more salary for super until their 40’s. The $25000 annual concessional contribution capped right through working life has not taken into consideration inflation while the cap balance can only be carried over on a rolling basis for 5 years is just not adequate. Only $1.6 mil super transfer balance can be transferred into retirement phase account. The new 30% tax for people earning more than $250,000 p.a. is higher than company tax while the old ceiling of $300,00 0 is a more realistic figure taking into consideration of inflation. The government has also forgotten the poor women who are not able to work and to have a super account due to family commitments. It takes less than 1% of voters to change government.
