    Default Welfare not to be cut in Budget - Dan Boyle

    Dan Boyle has just stated on Twitter that he is not expecting cuts in Welfare in this Budget, but they are expecting cuts to Qualifying criteria and secondary benefits.

    They will not agree to rate cuts.

    Dan has no power, and the Greens have little influence.

    I would not take this at face value

    To Jobseeker's Allowance and Job Seeker's Benefit in particular I wonder, or to all Welfare payments.

    If Public Sector Pay cannot be cut and Social welfare cannot be cut what does that leave? Close schools,hospitals and increase taxes by 2 billion?

    The old age pension has to be cut. Targeting the middle class who are barely afloat while letting a sector off that in most case's are doing fine.The property crash or job losses has limited effect on the pension population.

    Not a popular thing to say in my party but truth hurts.

    How can you bring the low paid into the tax net if you don't reduce welfare at the same time, these people are left cowards.

    It appears the Greens are raising the cost of Welfare to cover their Carbon Tax.

    LOL

    Fuel allowence is being increased to cover the effect of a carbon tax. There is no additional cost.
