I am in absolute shock that once again foreign aid is to be cut – instead giving major tax cuts to the rich and wealthy which is entirely unfair as they don’t need it. Research has consistently failed to show that trickle down economics works – sadly the rich simply get richer.
Aid cuts are also absolutely unconscionable when people are living in extreme poverty in our region.
Australia is a wealthy nation we must do its fair share to help our region deal with health and economic issues and create flourishing economies that we can trade with.
