DID YOU KNOW: Tasmania is headed for $343 million in debt under the Liberals

 

  • RER shows Treasurer Gutwein has blown the budget
  • Government spending big on elections promises, not fixing the health crisis

 

Within three years, Peter Gutwein will drive Tasmania into $343 million in net debt*.

Despite claiming the Liberals would live within their means, Peter Gutwein helped rack up $2.7 billion in election promises and now has the state barrelling towards debt.

Shadow Treasurer Scott Bacon said Mr Gutwein had blown favourable economic conditions and delivered no new economic reforms.

“Despite favourable economic conditions and increased revenue the Liberals have failed to fix the crisis in our hospitals and health system, failed to plan for our future housing needs and still won’t pay Tasmanian public sector workers their fair share.

“The Liberals racked up billions in reckless election spending and now they claim the cupboard is bare.

“Peter Gutwein is recklessly blowing the good times with unchecked spending, sending Tasmania back into debt just like previous Liberal Governments.”

    Surely there are laws in place that permit litigation against this state’s Liberal party due to the insufferable agony of pretense and incompetence having been thrust upon Tasmania’s people in lieu of proper democratic process of governance!

    If not tenable, charges of conspiracy should be lodged alleging the abortion of democratic process by the irresponsible Tasmanian Liberal party incumbents.
