‘Morrison Keeper’: Tanya Plibersek’s review of the federal budget
Tanya Plibersek says the government’s budget is “nothing like a Labor budget” at its heart.
It’s been likened to a big-spending Labor-style budget but the Shadow Minister for Women and Education told Scott Emerson she rejected the comparison.
“Well it is certainly not a Labor budget,” she said.
“There are some measures in here that we support but it’s nothing like a Labour budget because it has at its heart, a prediction that wages will fall next year and of course next year as wages are falling there will be a tax hike for millions of working Australians.
“It’s a budget I am calling Morrison Keeper because there’s a lot of money thrown at problems that are of the government’s own making.”
