Angry Pensioners slam Entitlements Cuts
A GROUP of elderly people feel ‘victimised’ and ‘trapped’ after government cuts age pension entitlements.
Pensioners are up in arms after changes to the Age Pension assets test announced earlier this year mean that their age pension payments will be slashed.
Jenny Freemantle, 65, said: “This has made me very angry. I’ve been a Liberal voter all my life and I feel very betrayed.”
“You’ve got all these young people sitting on the dole, and all these foreigners coming here to take our jobs and destroy our way of life. It’s a disgrace.”
Irene Bedford, 78, added: “We feel victimised by this, as we are the ones who have been working all our lives and now we’re being unfairly targeted because other people refuse to work.”
James McGuigan, 82, said: “This has made a lot of us, 14 to be exact, extremely angry as we are relying on pensions to get by.
