Bud­get’s packed with fees

Balonne Beacon - - NEWS | WELCOME -

THIS year’s State Bud­get, Jackie Trad’s first as Trea­surer, was a bud­get jam-packed with taxes and debt.

La­bor’s five new taxes and fees will rip a to­tal of $2.25 bil­lion out of Queenslanders’ pock­ets – that’s $450 ev­ery Queens­lan­der will give to the gov­ern­ment be­cause of Trad’s tax grabs.

That’s $450 that could be go­ing to­wards every­day ex­penses like gro­ceries, soar­ing power bills or petrol for the car.

As­ton­ish­ingly, La­bor is still ca­reer­ing Queens­land to­wards an $83 bil­lion debt bill that our kids will have to pay back.

So not only will Queenslanders be pay­ing more taxes now, they’ll also be forced to pay off more and more debt.

The LNP has an eco­nomic plan to en­sure that Queens­land’s best days are ahead of us.

We will tackle sky-rock­et­ing elec­tric­ity and fuel costs, fix our public health sys­tem, de­liver bet­ter ed­u­ca­tion for our kids and make it eas­ier to do busi­ness and cre­ate more lo­cal jobs.

The LNP’s eco­nomic plan will de­liver on the is­sues that Queenslanders need and ex­pect with­out slap­ping ev­ery Queens­lan­der with a $450 bill. — Tim Man­der LNP Deputy Leader and Shadow Trea­surer
