How hypocritical


How hypocritical is the Abbott LNP government pleading for mercy for a pair of drug traffickers and offering to pay their costs for life while at the same time showing no mercy for pensioners in this country by reducing the payment value of the pension over time to CPI increases.
What the Abbott LNP government should be doing with regards to pensioners is striking off the wealthy pensioners who were included by the Howard LNP government because they wanted the discounts on rates and electricity even though they were well capable of paying their own way without relying on welfare.
Welfare is for those who have no other choice but to be on welfare either by injury or age, this is not a system that should allow wealthy people to claim welfare.
