Labor’s top 10 Achievements of the last 12 months

1. LOST THE ELECTION

But the Leader of the Opposition did a victory lap because he managed to hang on to his job

2. TOOK A BUDGET BLACK HOLE TO THE ELECTION

Proposed adding $16 billion to the deficit, jeopardising our triple-A credit rating

3. $47 BILLION IN BACKFLIPS

Labor was “flushed out” on the School Kids Bonus, foreign aid and the pension asset taper.

4. BACKED SHANGHAI SAM DASTYARI

Labor kept Senator Carr and took on the Member for Fenner as an intern.

5. VOTED AGAINST MULTINATIONAL TAX LEGISLATION

After doing nothing when in government, Labor voted against the Multinational Anti-Avoidance Legislation.

6. TRIED TO SMASH PROPERTY PRICES

Labor proposed scrapping negative gearing and gave us the Feeney house and Feeney papers.

7. BLOCKED CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE

Labor opposed the major productivity enhancing infrastructure projects of WestConnex in Sydney and the Perth Freight Link, after helping Victorian Labor pay over $1 billion not to build the East West Link.

8. WANTED TO BRING BACK THE CARBON TAX

That’s why Labor won’t scrap the carbon tax compensation payments.

9. PUT FORWARD $100 MILLION IN HIGHER TAXES

Labor tried calling new taxes “saves” but Labor wanted higher taxes on business, savings and families.

10. RE-ELECTED BILL SHORTEN

Bill did a victory lap while the Member for Grayndler wanted to wait for the election result to be known before having the vote on the position of Leader.

In contrast to the triple threat to our triple-A rated economy from Labor’s higher taxes, higher deficits and higher debt, the Turnbull Government’s plan for jobs and growth has delivered more than 200,000 new jobs in the past year and supported economic growth of 3.3 per cent.

Over the last year, the Turnbull Government has continued to support the successful transition of our economy. The continued strength in our economy evident in the numbers has been the product of ensuring a consistency of policy, opposing measures that would hurt our economy and sticking to a plan that works.
