Federal Government off to flying start

Oh dear, it's going to be one of those years (again), politically speaking:

A person living on the dole receives $246 a week.

As a Cabinet Minister, Ms Macklin earns $6321 a week.
-----
Families Minister Jenny Macklin has said she could live on the dole of just $35 a day, but her answer has been omitted from the transcript of a press conference issued by her office.

Asked this morning whether she could live on the Newstart allowance of $246 a week, Ms Macklin told reporters ‘‘I could.’’


But when Ms Macklin’s office later issued a transcript of the press conference, held at a hospital in the Minister’s Melbourne electorate, both the question and answer were recorded ‘‘inaudible.’’
The great vanishing act, Maklin's dole comment disappears
