Even Liberals are outraged

Welfare provokes new tensions in the Liberal ranks - National -

Another Liberal MP has come out against another outrageous policy from the Liberal Party. Reforms to welfare and the minimum wage that would attack the well-being of the people in the interests of the rich and powerful have seen firm opposition from Labor and Left wing groups. But this is the first time a Liberal back-bencher has criticized plans to force mums into work when their child grows up and to loosen the requirements to pay people fairly. These attacks do nothing more than make it harder for the average family to survive in the interest of boosting profits for big business. This is simply not fair, and I'd like say to those who voted for Howard. What the hell were you thinking!
