Cutting the cost of living needs the Government to stop wasting your money.
Every time government wastes your money, you pay either with higher taxes or delays in critical projects which should be prioritised.
In real terms, Queensland total infrastructure expenditure hasn’t kept pace with growth or other States and our hospitals haven’t had enough, but still the Palaszczuk Labor Government found over $200 million to waste on the Wellcamp White Elephant and they can’t say how much their re-envisioned “Gabba” project will finally cost.
This is on top of budget blowouts of over $6 billion on projects, including cross river rail, which could have built 3 hospitals the size of Sunshine Coast University Hospital, plus the Premier’s personal team of over 30 media spinners.
One of my roles as Shadow Finance Minister and Better Regulation is to help identify government waste and recommend better ways of spending it on the services Queenslanders and build our economy.
Your feedback is critical. Let me know your ideas about how to cut waste and focus State Government spending on the services and infrastructure our community and State need. Just email me care of the office.
