The Liberals’ $140 billion in tax cuts - backed by One Nation and Nick Xenophon's Centre Alliance - hands billions in tax cuts to millionaires, while ripping money from hospitals, schools and essential services.
These tax cuts are cuts to essential services. The Libs’ tax cut plan will make people earning up to $200,000 a year even richer while cutting the revenue needed to fund public schools and hospitals, and our social safety net.
This sort of short-term thinking is not the way to tackle growing economic inequality. Instead of spending $140 billion on tax cuts for people who don’t need them, we could have universal funded denticare, free university education, free childcare and low cost, green energy.
While the Liberals, One Nation and Centre Alliance have let our community down, the Greens will always support growing our public services. We’re committed to building a future that works for all of us.
