Have been touted for the upcoming May Budget. Link: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-03-2...posits/6355662
Surely this will be political suicide in such a low interest rate environment?
Details are scant but is the govt. nuts or are they trying to tighten the screws so that other budget measures will be passed?
Still nothing would surprise me as the Abbott govt. seems hell bent on fixing the apparent spending craze of the Labor party. Now the mining boom is over, what have our govts. done to negate the inevitable?
Not much from my way of thinking as I can't shake the feeling that we are in a belated and protracted post CFG hit.
The PM must have been aware of this hence him taking on the mantel of "infrastructure PM". Nothing like govt. spending to help the economy right?
TA reckons his mob will do a far better job than the opposition so they will need the money to fund this from somewhere. The last budget was an appalling mess so why not really put our nosed out of joint and tax our bank deposits.
I keep saying that the major party's all fail to ignite and garnish support from the mug punters so please, give us something to cheer about. Something tangible that will make me say, yep, I understand and fully support our leaders and their vision (aka business plan) and I'm prepared to tighten my belt and/or give a little back or forego now for more later. Oh wait, that's been done... ho hum...
