Neither, the Coalition or Labor will control the Senate after the next election – the Crossbench will. This means Australians will have to give very careful consideration to who occupies the crossbench.
Will it be the Greens that want to bring our economy to its knees by forcing the nation to 90% green energy by 2030? Will it be other crossbenchers that are happy to throw more money at whatever issue arises while blocking any savings measures the government puts forward?
Or will it be a party like Family First that not only values our social heritage and traditions, but values solid economic policy and austerity. Making sure we not only talk about living within our means, but do it.
We need a crossbench that will stop reckless spending, that will help pay down debt and get the budget back into the black.
Rod McGarvie, Senate Candidate Family First
