Quotes attributable to ACOSS CEO Cassandra Goldie:
“The Treasurer himself said the record surplus announced today is ‘a foundation from which we help people’. There is no better way to help than to lift people out of poverty by fixing income support.”
“People on woefully low payments are rationing food, forgoing essential medication and living in fear of every energy bill.
“The government should use this record budget surplus to raise the rate of income support so people on the lowest incomes can afford a decent standard of living."
