LABOR’S $3.4 BILLION BUDGET BLACK HOLE

As the election gets closer, Labor will get increasingly desperate to spend money as part of a sand-bagging exercise to try to save Labor Members of Parliament in marginal seats.

This means there will be more reckless spending from Labor between now and polling day.

Late yesterday evening Labor released an update of the net Budget impact of its election policies.

According to this document Labor policy commitments to date total $2,915 million.

The attached list of promises, according to Labor’s own figures and compiled from the Labor website, shows that the true cost of Labor’s election promises is $5,827.7 million.

Labor’s latest Update claims that they have identified savings worth $2,456 million.

This means Labor’s spending promises exceed their savings by $3,371.7 million - a $3.4 billion budget black hole.

Julia Gillard and Wayne Swan must say where this money is coming from.

On these figures it is clear that Labor has no hope of delivering a Budget surplus in 2013 as repeatedly promised - unless they massively increase their tax take.

A vote for Labor is therefore a vote for more taxes to fill their costings black hole.

Attached - list of Labor spending commitments (12 pages).
