Does anybody really think we can afford $33 billion in tax cuts to people who earn over $180,000 per year?

The $33bn is an estimate over 5 years, not per year.....

The likelihood is that the GST will rise too (as it needs to). If that happens, our net tax collection will most probably rise.

Stages 1&2 will see lower income tax rates fall first. Stage 3 probably won't be passed by the senate IMHO.
OER. Calling it as it is since 2004.

So was that a yes or a no?

You are correct but I was asking for an opinion not a definitive response.

Unemployment figures now among the worst in the developed world.


But we will still achieve that surplus.


Idiots.
