The 2015 Budget is a ‘have a go’ Budget that will help local families and small businesses, Federal Member for Bonner Ross Vasta said today.
“The big winners in this Budget are families and small businesses,” Mr Vasta said.
“This Budget will deliver jobs, growth and opportunity in a way that is responsible, measured and fair.”
“It is the next step in the Coalition Government’s long-term economic plan to build a stronger, safer and more prosperous future for all Australians.”
“We all know there are economic challenges – yet because of the economic management of the Abbott Government, Australia’s economic and Budget position has improved.”
“Our economic plan is working. Economic growth is up; jobs are up – nearly 250,000 new jobs since the election and retail sales are at record levels – as are new dwelling approvals.”
“Deficits over the forward estimates are reducing each and every year from $35.1 billion in 2015-16 to $6.9 billion in 2018-19. Importantly, our timetable back to a Budget surplus is unchanged from last year.”
