Federal budget: Premier now on side?
WITH the Federal budget a colossal hit on families and working people, it’s great our Premier now has a similar view to the CPSU on the devastation it would cause. According to reports our health system alone faces a $27 million shortfall next financial year under the Federal budget.
This week Mr Hodgman told the media: “When the budget was released we described it as the good, the bad and the ugly, it’s getting uglier by the day. What we are seeing is something that is untenable, that is unsustainable and I will not allow the rope to be pulled out from underneath us.”
The CPSU urges Mr Hodgman to encourage Liberal Senators to also oppose this budget.
