Abbott has been on a media blitz to try and sell his first budget since coming to office last September.The budget has been widely slammed as too harsh, with thousands of students marching in protest around the country Wednesday and Abbott forced to fend off furious criticism from members of the public. Another caller named Stella, a life-long supporter of Abbott's Liberal Party, accused him of treating the public like idiots.Abbott, whose popularity has plunged since the budget was announced last week, has accused the Labor opposition of leaving the country's finances in a mess and said hard decisions had to be make for the good of Australia.
