Our disabled have every right to be treated with dignity and forcing them out of their homes as the government is hell bent on doing is the very opposite of fair play.

These beat ups by the government must end!

They make no sound economic sense and no more than bastardisation.

It is appalling state of affairs when the most vulnerable are denied support while politicians' age of entitlement continues

People who suffer debilitating illnesses and accidents work very hard to recover their independence and autonomy. A small number of hours of affordable, in-home support makes a crucial difference to many, enabling them to live independently in their own homes. It is more cost efficient for the public purse, supports individual autonomy and provides for a better quality of life than residential institutional care.

I've had a stroke as well and have two bulging disc that press against my spinal chord when inflamed and two disc with horozontal tears as well as a tilt in my upper lumbar region and I broke both my sacroiliac joints. Thats only the major things wrong with me and its shocking having restricted movement and activities one can do. I was able recently to get my ceilings, and facisa and verandah cleaned and I am so appreciative of it. It's bad when you look ok but can't do hardly anything. I've lost the avility to walk twice and re-taught myself.

This is absolutely abhorrent how our government is treating our pensioners and the disabled. My goodness, why on earth is this happening here in Australia, this is just beyond comprehension to make these people suffer more than what they are suffering now.
