The question Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott was careful not to answer on the ABC program "Insiders"

Reporter Fran Kelly to Tony Abbott: You get to make the choices about what you do. And you talk about everybody bearing the load. But if you drill in the numbers, there was an example of a single mother on $45,000 a year with one child. This budget was going to cost her…around $2,690. You said, as we heard there, this will cost you your contribution, around $6,500.
You earn 11 times more than this woman but you pay 2.5 times the contribution. How is that fair? [ABC Insiders, 18 May 2014]
