Time to stop bor­row­ing

Maroochy Weekly - - NEWS -

NOTE to Jackie Trad – the state of Queens­land is broke.

We owe circa $80 bil­lion. Yet you prom­ise to spend $45 bil­lion on pro­posed in­fra­struc­ture projects, with more bor­rowed money.

Nice way to sway vot­ers for your re-elec­tion.

You need ev­ery vote with your mi­nor per­cent­age to hold onto your seat.

Politi­cians can prom­ise any­thing, how­ever to de­liver is the key.

The feds just bor­rowed in the last two weeks an­other $1.2 bil­lion in one week alone.

Key­word “bor­rowed”. We can­not sus­tain this mad­ness in both fed­eral and state are­nas.

The de­ci­sions made are tan­ta­mount to be­ing in­volved in white col­lar crime of­fences, both par­ties are as bad.

You can­not keep bor­row­ing to fund prom­ises.

When will this mad­ness stop?
