Liberals will always side with vested interests against Working Australians

Bill Shorten MP, in a media release (22 Mar 2012: Liberals warming up for back flip on superannuation), sets out the benefits of the changes to superannuation for low paid Australian workers.

Given a choice between a massive tax cut for billionaire vested interests and a boost of $184 billion in savings for working Australians, the Liberals will always side with vested interests.

Yet, this benefit to low-income, working Australians and retirees does not get as much media attention, as billionaires who own media empires and hold press conferences.

Shorten goes on to talk about key Liberals walking away from any changes that benefit low paid Australians.

Shadow Finance Minister Andrew Robb slammed the Liberal’s own policy on Sydney radio yesterday, calling their commitment to keep the Labor Government’s historic boost to superannuation a move which will ‘knock the stuffing’ out of employers.

Andrew Robb either supports his party’s policy, or he’s preparing the ground to scrap it – because he clearly can’t have it both ways, Mr Shorten said.

The $70Billion budget blackhole of the Liberal Nationals budget will give large tax cuts to billionaires funded by slashing anything that will benefit working Australians, low-income Australians, and self-funded retirees.
