Minister faces pressure over budget cuts
Mr Andrews said the government had no plans to cut income tax.
“We will continue to support people and provide tax breaks for people who need them,” he said.
“The money that i우리카지노s currently being handed out will support around 3,000 people through the Government welfare system.”
The cuts, the largest to the welfare budget ever, will result in an increased tax bill of about $4 billion a year to government.
Treasurer Joe Hockey’s budget was estimated to take $16.9 b바카라사이트illion out of the general government budget in the year to August 2018.
It included cuts to disability assistance and child benefit for the aged, to be introduced in July 2018, and $1.7 billion for community and small business payments.
But Mr Hockey said that the impact of the cuts in the budget would be seen across the entire community and not just youth, a target that may not be possible in the long term.
Treasurer Joe Hockey says the Budget’s cuts will affect everyone and not just the aged.
The governmen바카라t also announced cuts to childcare vouchers, which will cost up to $2,600 a year for low-income families, while reducing the number of children available for adoption.
Mr Hockey said the number of people in poverty would be reduced by about 10 per cent, with nearly 2.9 million people having incomes of less than $30,000 per year.
There is also the $4 billion in savings that comes in through the government’s cuts to social security.
In his Budget, Mr Hockey announced a number of measures to help address the fiscal challenge the nation faces, including tax relief for the lowest paid, new investment in research and development, and cuts to the budget deficit.
