While Andrews was away… Pallas let the cat out of the bag

In Question Time today, Premier Andrews was questioned over his Treasurer’s announcement last week, made while the Premier was on holidays, that his Labor Government will be imposing $4 billion of cuts on Victorians.

Despite direct questioning about how many Victorian workers will lose their jobs as a result of Labor’s $4 billion cuts, Andrews refused to come clean.

After five years of Labor’s poor and reckless financial management, Victoria is the highest taxed state in the country – a fact confirmed by RMIT ABC Fact Check.

When asked if he would rule out any tax increases on Victorian families and small businesses to fix Labor’s budget black hole, Andrews failed to do so which shows the real cost of Labor.

 

Comments attributable to Shadow Treasurer, Louise Staley:

“Andrews can’t manage the budget and his $4 billion of cuts will cost thousands of Victorians their jobs and the services they rely on.

“Andrews has blown the budget and we know when Labor runs out of money it comes after yours.”
