Cost of raising Newstart in 2019/20? $3.3 billion
Government surplus in 2019/20? $7.1 billion

People on over 200k (ie. everyone in Parliament) have been gifted over $7000 a year in this budget. Meanwhile, no relief for people struggling to survive on $39 a day on Newstart – in fact this budget is a cut to Newstart in real terms. Disgraceful. #budget18

What is it about saying "we will lift Newstart to something reasonable so that the unemployed are not driven to charity food drives, homeless shelters & shame" that so terrifies the Labor Party? How far ahead in the polls do they need to be to not fear compassion?
