Costello’s Tax Cuts

May 24, 2005

It wasn’t needed, but in further evidence of where the Liberal Party really stands on the question of “battlers” the federal Treasurer, Peter Costello recently announced huge tax cuts of $65 per week for Superintendents and only $6 per week for Senior Firefighters.

For those who missed it, the Opposition’s alternative – tax breaks of only $35 per week for Superintendents and $12 per week for Senior Firefighters – was either slammed by the mainstream media, or reported so briefly as to not have been reported at all.
