When Josh said: ‘’We know the Labor Party will always tax more, they’ll always spend more’’, Jim hit back: ‘’The Treasurer has just lied to you.’’ The Coalition’s line that Albanese is not qualified to be prime minister because he has no experience as treasurer was wisely queried by a reporter who pointed out that the likes of Menzies, Hawke and Abbott, not to mention on the world stage the likes of Angela Merkel and Volodymyr Zelensky didnt hold economic portfolios either. Labor’s problem remains the lingering perceptions that it doesn’t manage money as well as the Coalition. Here at MWM we know otherwise. And Chalmers pointed out that the tax take has been lower under Labor governments than the Coalition over the past 30 years.
