The problem with Tony Abbott is that he’s big on criticism of the Federal Government for borrowing money to maintain economic stability for the country. This doesn’t stop him from declaring a “budget emergency” while simultaneously promising to keep a set of tax cuts and welfare payments tied to an income stream as large as the carbon tax but it can be magically fixed with spending cuts. This is revenue of $4 billion a year that has to somehow come out of other things in the country’s coffers.
I shake my head in disbelief (and anger) in at how people in this country can be so easily deceived by political nonsense. This comes from both sides of the divide.
