Interestingly there hasn't been a discussion on this evening's Federal Budget. Sydney Morning Herlad has summarised a list of winners and losers. Yes there will be a lot of cuts on both high end and low end, and the reduced expense will hopefully steer Australia back to surplus one day.
However instead of talking boring politics, maybe we can discuss how this budget will affect you individually? For my family it's probably "annoying but not a big deal".
- Already pay more than $7 for GP visit as there's almost no bulk-bill GPs in my area
- Earn way less than $180k
- However never got FTB B either
- Still a few decades before turning 70
- Increased fuel levy might hurt us a bit
How is the federal budget affecting you & your life style? Would that make you spend more or less time on OzBargain?
