When a Child is Born

January 19, 2015

joe-hero

Federal National Living Treasurer Joe Hockey has today defended the government’s well-received GP Co-payment proposal by declaring that there are people alive today who will live to 150 years of age.

He said this, not just in front of real people, but to the entire nation, or what’s left of it, via the Murdoch television peoples.

Mr Hockey made the comments earlier today while arguing the case for budget cuts and to explain why Australians should pay more for their health care.

“It is kind of remarkable that somewhere in the world today, it is highly probable, a child has been born who will live to be 150,” he told the nation’s media.

“That is a long time.”

“They would have said 100 years ago that living to 80 or 90 was a long time; the question is how do we live with dignity.”

150 is really just the new 130 when you think about it, so with most Australians spending 30 years in retirement we can all expect to enjoy working until we’re 120.

Minister for Employment, whoever he is these days, denied the government was considering lifting the Pension Eligibility age to 95.

    Well said Reb. You’d need a very long line indeed to plumb the depths of Joe’s stupidity.

    Its Highly probable that Hokey may hold the mantle as the most desperate and inept political operative in Australians political history..

    It will take 150 days to privatize them?…
    They will be leased to Fiberal donors for 150 years?
    We shill have 5 more broken promises and lies to tally 150?
    You will have to earn $150 in hidden fees to use them?
    It takes 159 minutes as the crow flies to get from Waringah oval to Matraville?
    I know the lobbyists that want to own them all donated $150 grand each?

    #desperajoe or #cluelessjoe?

    Speaking to Neil Mitchell on radio station 3AW yesterday, Hockey made a serious blunder that begs the question: does the Treasurer understand the difference between marginal and average tax rates?

    Eleventy might be getting a little nervous right now perhaps?

    Fairfax Media has called on a Sydney Liberal Party fundraising forum to provide all documents regarding any involvement by federal Treasurer Joe Hockey in its activities as part of the defamation action brought by Mr Hockey.

    “Based on my current health, I’m expecting to reach about 130”

    I was going for 100, but I might revise that upwards in light of this new information.

    I’m revising mine down from immortal. Only because you lot couldn’t pay my medicare bills 😦

    ””””’Mr Hockey is claiming that, as a result of articles published on May 5 under the headline ”Treasurer for sale” he has been “greatly injured, shunned and avoided and his reputation has been and will be brought into disrepute, odium, ridicule and contempt”.”””

    #By gina`s `fairfax`.? Surely Eleventy jests. Stupid fcuking Eleventy should take a peek at blogspot and wordpress to see what its like to really be hammered, gins`s `fairfax` don`t flog him that hard.

    +

    ””””But Fairfax Media denies the articles and the headlines, including “Treasurer for sale”, are capable of defaming Mr Hockey in the way that he claims.””””

    #lt`s no secret the teabags are for sale, and as much as it pains me to agree with gina`s pets, they are correct here.
