I know I shouldn't get too particular concerning politics right now..., but I am stuck with these details about how our current Prime Minister is managing money, since he claims he's good at it.
(And, sorry, this post is all about Australia).
Our PM’s ‘knows how to manage money’. Here’s a few examples of how he (& his party) does it:
-$1.2 million for MICHAELIA Cash’s legal bills.
-$184 million to fake reopen Christmas Island
-$60,000 for a media stunt on Christmas Island
-$423 million closed tender contract with Paladin for a 17 month contract to deliver services for 432 refugees
-$200 million re-election propaganda advertisements for the LNP COALITION GOVT
-$30 million gift for Murdoch’s FOXTELL
-$2.8 BILLION wage CUTS for Australian workers, with more cuts from 1st July
$889 million tax concession for Murdoch
-ZERO tax paid by Gina Rhinehart
-ZERO tax for 75 billionaires
-ZERO tax for 745 corporations
-$4.2 billion moved offshore by MURDOCH and paid ZERO tax
-$126 wasted costs for a postal survey vote for SSM
-$80 million for dodgy water buy backs
-$200 billion for obsolete weapons
-$65 billion for corporate tax cuts (proposed)
-$17 billion for big banks (proposed)
-$135 billion per annum for the rich
-$60 million for a Captain Cook statue in Morrison’s electorate
-$6.7 million to re enact the circumnavigation of Australia which never happened in the first place
-$7.7 billion for fossil fuel subsidies
-$444 million gift to the Great Barrier Reef foundation
-$3.8 billion to boost weapon sales
-Spent $74 million of our taxes to pay Nickel Mining workers some of their entitlements- Clive Palmer has paid his workers ZERO
-$60 million Royal Commission witch hunt against Unions and Labor
-$Untold costs of the Indue card said to be $10 thousand dollars per applicant per year
-The doubling of debt by the LNP. The debt rides at more than QUADRUPLE the debt left by Labor Government of $250 billion dollars gross debt after the World 1st class Economy after the GFC.
NOW (2019) the debt rides at $756 BILLION DOLLARS GROSS DEBT under this LIBERAL COALITION GOVT and that’s not including the Turnbull NBN debt of $650 Billion dollars.
That equates to a DEBT of $1.4 TRILLION DOLLARS and this is what it looks like ….$1,400,000,000,000……..a lot of dollars!
