A Dutton government would support older Australians, who choose to work more, by doubling the amount of income age pensioners and veteran service pensioners can earn without reducing pension payments.

This change will make it more worthwhile for older Australians to pick up an extra shift or work extra hours and help small and regional businesses deal with labour shortages.

The Leader of the Opposition the Hon Peter Dutton MP calls on the Albanese Government to implement the policy immediately to help relieve pressure on a very tight labour market.

Are you one of these older Australian's Mr Broadbent? Or are your benefits on an entirely different level? Will you be doing something to help older Australians or is this just another "johnny come lately" policy sugar fix after your party's huge defeat? What were you doing to support older Australian's when you were in power? Indue Card? Reducing and eroding Medicare? Increasing the pension for those who needed it?

Funny they wouldn’t allow it when they were in office

What a surprise, now you’re in opposition you’ve found a voice on things. You’re a waste of space Russell, the only things you talk about are things you can’t (or won’t) influence. Talked the right stuff on refugees, then lost your conscience when you had some power. Talked smack about medical expert advice to undermine the healthcare profession, but didn’t have to deal with the consequences. Talking now about how the abysmally pathetic level of the age pension is too low but spent the last decade supporting a government that could have changed it but instead unleashed robo-debt. You’re a joke.

Well that’ll never happen. A Dutton government, that’s hilarious 😂😂😂😂

Is this the "Russell Broadbent" appreciation page? Or have LNP supporters lost the faith? Asking for a friend. ;-)

Why hasn't that happened years ago???

You were just in power you knob.. and did nothing!!!!

Well, why didn’t that happen, Liberal and Labor are two arms of the same lying 🤥 parties.

how about you get labour to get rid of the ridiculous Medicare changes brought in by Mike Hunt during the Commander Morrison theocracy so that older Australians can afford medical treatment?? I need cortisone injections guided by ultrasound- cortisone is free, ultrasound $400 a joint. do your job for once. You had 9 years holiday doing sweet FA- earn your quarter of a million a year

So, both parties have trained the younger ones NOT to work & just wait for hand outs. And those that have worked & paid taxes all their life, only to receive a pitiful pension, are being asked to work even longer?!

Oi election over.... we don't have a dutton government you better not be bleating this for the next 3 years rather than representing us federally you aren't even IN THE SAME PARTY

Why do all political promises involve adding to debt

Thank you Russell Broadbent MP for celebrating #ShowYourStripes Day 2022! We really appreciated the chance to meet with you last year to talk about the importance of taking urgent action on climate change - thank you for your support in receiving the gift of a Common Grace #KnitForClimateAction scarf.

Climate change is a rort!

Which climate change are you actioning on, the warming, the cooling or that it's never going to rain again? What a heap of poppycock.

The design of these scarves are based on temperature data from 1919 to 2019 - each stripe is knitted to correspond to the average temperature of each year. Unsurprisingly, the orange-red end is the more recent years. While we have all experienced “hot days” before, it is clear from 100 years of data represented in these scarves that the average temperature of the globe is warming. Please take action to reverse the colour scheme Russell Broadbent MP Common Grace #showyourstripes #wearthescarf #knitforclimateaction

“Australian forests adsorb 940 million tonnes of carbon dioxide per annum compared to our domestic and industrial emissions of 417 million tonnes. Add to that the absorption of carbon dioxide in continental Australia to the carbon dioxide adsorption of 2,500,000 square kilometres of continental shelf waters and Australia sequesters some five times as much carbon dioxide as it emits. Australia does more than its share of the heavy lifting for global sequestration of carbon dioxide.” As posted previously the CSIRO has stated in estimates there are 40 different models to calculate net zero. Any argument about emissions reductions is pointless if there is no agreement on how net emissions are calculated. It would seem there is more than enough evidence that Australia does it’s fair share of heavy lifting when it comes to protecting our environment. We should not be jeopardizing jobs and our industries on the alter of junk science.

Can you organize some warm weather for us please...

Seriously? Your a global warming nutter? 🤣 fml

The Climate Money science is settled.
