A basicscard is destroying people's lives. You can't buy food from a fruit and veg shop, the market, a butcher or Aldi. Coles and Woolworths are too expensive and has shortened many families meals because they are forced to shop at Coles and Woolworths to buy items they could've bought for half the Coles and woolies prices elsewhere like Aldi, fruit and vegetables etc. 

If you are out and about and far away from home and need a drink but there's only a take away shop you can buy a drink from but because you're stuck with a basics card you can't buy that drink because you can't use a basic card at any takeaway shop, restaurant etc. 

Please help me get rid of this tragic basicscard please families are eating one meal a day because that's all they can afford.

Need to lower income of senators, other officials not cut programs to help people.

Petition to Instead of cutting programs of people searching for jobs, helping with programs for low income and building more affordable housing. Senators make $174, 000 a year. They should only make double the medium income for that state and put the rest back into the kettle for programs needed. By this stage they are established and do not pay a morgage and after6 yrs they are set for life with a pension. We need people who want the job not forthe income but to really help others, some od but it makes nosense for someone totake home this amount and cut spending saying short to help those in need saying they can not afford this or that. The money of lets say 74, 000 each put back will go a far distance. .
