JLN will use Senate balance of power to keep Pension Qualifying Age at 65 standard

Tasmanian JLN Independent Senator Jacqui Lambie has vowed to use any future balance of power in the Senate to fight to keep the Aged Pension qualifying age at 65. “Most Australians have forgotten that both the Liberal and Labor parties have agreed to increase the qualifying age for the Australian aged pension from 65 to 67  – because it’s unsustainable. What’s unsustainable is Australia borrowing $50B over the next ten years to give away in poorly targeted foreign aid – when international reports show that more than a third of all our pensioners are living below the poverty line.  A decent Aged Pension at 65 is not a privilege – it is a right,” said Senator Lambie. “Independent Parliamentary Library research I commissioned says: currently a person must be 65 years of ...

Mother’s Day doesn’t need to be turned into Turnbull’s day.  While I’m here I’d like to wish all ...

For example Indonesia – who has a military thats about 10 times the number of serving members in Australia’s Defence Forces – over the next decade, will receive between $3B and $4B in Australian foreign aid. Now that it’s time to become extra careful on how we spend our public funds – it’s time we had ...
