Plebians only

FORMER Treasurer Joe Hockey said “the age of entitlement is over”, which means cutting services to hospitals, education and other services that benefit the disadvantaged.

Now Joe is pensioned off at the age of 50 on $90,000 a year, something I am not allowed to do.

He can also collect from us weary taxpayers a cool $360,000 as Ambassador to the United States.

It is called double dipping, and that is another thing I am not allowed to do.

What he failed to clarify was that the age of entitlement was over for us plebeians only. It would not apply to politicians.
