Tell us about your debt and how has this affected you? e.g. anxiety levels, financial and accommodation stress: 

i am a disability pensioner i was hurt in a work place accident so trying to pay $140,000 back is impossible. They cut my centrelink payments all of November and what little savings i had i had to pay into rent which destroyed my christmas and probity will never financially recover. I have 3 kids i'm trying to raise and screwing all this up so close to Christmas is unbelievably poor judgment on the politicians part and seems very deliberate, this has cost me relationships and i'm stressed all the time about it and i have great deal of stress for people who are not as strong as me who may take their own lives over the stress these politicians have caused there is a special place in hell for the liberal party and the minister for centrelink need to go to jail.

How do you feel about the way the Government has handled this process?: 

It is of my opinion that this will go down as one of the greatest FUBR in the history of the Australian government, i would like to remind all the politicians that they work for the Australian people, not for themselves and when they hurt the people as badly as these politicians have and delusional think they are doing a good job, heads need to roll, these people obviously think they are above the Australian people. The Australian people need to rise up and put these politicians in the place they deserve to be and never be in a position of power to dishonestly further themselves in a position above the Australian people
