    Hope the budget will speak to the problems of general people.. loan rates are absolutely ridiculous.. should be single digit %. Solves a lot of problems rather than making bank guys richer..

    Well, if the collation government can pass the budget in the 3rd reading with 165-55 votes, then it will indicate how stable the government!!!?? Yeah, Now that's the challenge!!??
