Angus Taylor comes out swinging like a see-saw at the press club. His “abstract” economy is “resilient” and doing well. However, the majority of people and small businesses that make it up aren’t. Good Onya Angus! Isn’t Labor saying that and acting on it when the LNP weren’t? It’s why you’re in opposition now and no longer a do-nothing government.
The economy is about people – and people are struggling to keep up with the cost of living.
That’s the key message shadow treasurer Angus Taylor wanted to get across in his first major speech since the Albanese government’s first budget.
Mr Taylor said the overarching economy was in a relatively good position but businesses were struggling to find workers, waterlogged roads were deteriorating and power bills were hurting hip pockets.
“The Australian economy is fundamentally resilient,” he told the National Press Club on Wednesday.
