Take a bow Jim Chalmers and the Albanese Labor government, what an outstanding effort in delivering such a great budget under very difficult conditions.
Hamstrung by a one trillion dollar debt and a staggering interest bill of $2.5 million an hour, thanks to an incompetent Coalition government that just cannot handle money, this highly efficient proactive Labor government has managed to deliver a budget surplus within 12 months of taking office – and the first one for 15 years. This is exactly what a government that is governing for all Australians looks like.
Recent world events have sent shock waves through the economies of all OECD countries and sent interest rates soaring, putting immense financial pressure on all their budgets, and cost of living pressures on their citizens, including Australia. Above all this doom and gloom, Labor has delivered energy bill relief, cost of living relief, rental relief, affordable housing relief, JobSeeker boost, cheaper pharmaceuticals, strengthening Medicare, and reducing government debt.
How good is it to see not only a government actually delivering on their election promises, but actually expanding on them in their first budget, unlike a devious coalition that lied profusely in order to get elected then unashamedly reneged, and the non-delivering, all p**s-and-wind Greens.
Blah,Blah,Blah,Blah,Blah. Wonderful Albo, best PM ever, stupid opposition.
Greg, you never fail to astound me with your grasp of the English language, but I see you are improving, Albo probably the best PM ever, but describing the opposition as just stupid is something of an massive understatement.
How is the best PM and Treasurer ever handling the economy lately. Doing a mediocre job I would suggest. I wonder how many more accounting quirks they can dredge up from the depths of their policy cesspit. People are starting to see through this amateur government.
Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Greg. What a mediocre comment.
KD & AV, as sad as it may be you both have a world of trouble accepting the truth. You are backing the wrong horse here. The truth is the wonderful labor government has lied on too many occasions and have made a total mess of managing money. Like it or not.
