MEDIA RELEASE: MORE PROOF SCOTT MORRISON CAN’T BE TRUSTED WITH THE PENSION  

Fresh Liberal leaks prove that work to dump the Government’s cruel plan to increase the pension age to 70 started under Malcolm Turnbull – and was opposed by Scott Morrison.

Reports today have laid bare Scott Morrison’s hypocrisy.

Australian pensioners won’t be surprised. They didn’t come down in the last shower.

Scott Morrison has spent five years – including three as Treasurer – arguing every day that the pension age should be increased to 70.

The Liberals and Nationals have tried to cut the pension in every single budget.

“The cracks in this Government are getting bigger – and the Prime Minister’s colleagues are undermining him every day,” Linda Burney said.

“The Liberals and Nationals didn’t walk away from their plan to increase the pension age to save pensioners – they did it in a desperate attempt to try and save themselves.

“No one spends years trying to cut the pension and make bricklayers, farmers and nurses work until they are 70 unless it’s what they really believe in.”

Pension cuts are in the Liberal/National DNA.

Labor has fought the Liberals’ and Nationals’ cuts to the pension at every turn

The only way to protect older Australians is to vote Labor at the next election
