Senator LEYONHJELM (New South Wales) (14:39): Minister, in your previous comments you have referred to the Rudd-Gillard-Rudd government as Whitlam-esque. In the year Rudd left office tax receipts were 21 per cent of GDP and net debt was $202 billion. Tax receipts and net debt are now higher under your government, and you project this will remain the case in the future. Doesn't this make you more Whitlam-esque than Rudd?
