Liberal budget response

Font Size:

As leader of the opposition party, Tony Abbott has delivered the traditional response to the Federal Government’s budget plans. If the Liberal Party takes the helm as a result of this year’s federal election, will Australians fare better?

The simple answer is we don’t yet know. While Tony Abbott was able to outline his party’s plans for Australia’s economy, there were no definite figures attached to his alternative budget. The financial detail of such plans will be delivered by shadow treasurer, Joe Hockey, next Wednesday, 19 May. Until we have anything substantial to go on, we will have to listen to the political arguments flying back and forth. But on which issues will Joe Hockey focus? We will have to wait and see but in the interim, why not read what Tony Abbott had to say about Treasurer Swan’s budget.
