The Greens have called the Government's decision to recommence ‘debt raising’ against income support recipients a disgrace.
We are in a recession and a pandemic and instead of giving Australians certainty about their future and ensuring they won’t be living on $40 a day come December this Government is choosing to create more anxiety and fear in our community by chasing people for debts at a time in their life when many are at their most vulnerable.
This Government has an ideological obsession with punishing people on income support.
In the middle of a recession, it is obscene that the Government has fast-tracked tax cuts for millionaires and now the Government is chasing money from people doing it tough.
The Government should sort out their own illegal robodebt mess.
