The budget - How did we fair?

KIRSTEN Livermore has declared last night's budget a big win for Capricornia.

Her successor as Labor's candidate for the seat, Peter Freeleagus says it's now up to Tony Abbott to match the Schoolkids bonus and $4.1 billion commitment to the Bruce Highway.

However Liberal candidate for Capricornia, Michelle Landry says $50 million being spent on interest repayments every day could pay for the Yeppen upgrade in six days.
