2015 Budget Benefit changes?

I am very worried about the changes to benefits that are about to be announced in the Budget next week. All kinds of leaks and rumours flying about the tory government cutting ESA even for the sickest people. My daughter sufferes from Chronic Migraine which is that she suffers from debilitating attacks 15 to 20 days a month, she does have the odd good day when she can go out and do things but it is totally unpredicatable and in spite of best efforts she has been unable to work due to the condition and has been placed in the support group. Some are suggesting and the distinction between ESA support and work related activity will be scrapped and that all even the sickest will have to look for work and they will all get the same as JSA. It is just so unrealistic, cuts would put my daughter on the breadline and she is already very vulnerable.

Does anyone have any idea of what they are planning?

Nope, but I'm interested to hear too. DS will probably be a candidate for ESA at some point.
