Last night, many Werriwa residents were hoping for something better from Malcolm Turnbull and Scott Morrison. But this government has continued with the cuts of the past five years and delivered another unfair budget.
Unfortunately, locals in South West Sydney have been dudded again.
This unfair budget:
Put simply, this budget continues to give to the top end of town and take from the services that people in Werriwa rely on.
Even on “big” infrastructure announcements, last night’s budget come up short. In March Mr Turnbull said he would invest in a Western Sydney Rail line to Badgerys Creeks as part of his Western Sydney City Deal. But last night’s Budget included no money to build the railway line, just $50 million to prepare a business case.
“Even when the Turnbull Government sets us up for big things, we’re met with another huge disappointment. This Liberal Government is long on talk but fails to deliver for locals in South West Sydney," said Anne Stanley, Federal Member for Werriwa.
"This budget not only delivers more of the same cuts, but brings new cuts too. It is simply unfair,” said Ms Stanley.
