Labor is refusing to rule out taking a $4 billion scalpel to health, education and the environment as it grapples with a failing budget.
Last week the Treasurer Tim Pallas said he was "looking at every line item of expenditure and I’m looking to take something like $4 billion out of government expenditure.”
When asked in Question Time today Daniel Andrews refused to rule out cuts to any area of government spending including to schools, hospitals and the environment.
It’s time Daniel Andrews comes clean on exactly where his $4 billion of vicious funding cuts will be inflicted.
Comments attributable to Shadow Treasurer, Louise Staley:
“Daniel Andrews needs to be honest with Victorians about where his $4 billion of vicious funding cuts will be inflicted.
“This is the cost of Labor; cuts to schools, hospitals and environment all because Daniel Andrews has maxed out the State’s credit card and can’t manage money.”
