Today marks the 12th straight interest rate rise for Australia, and in particular it will effect mostly those with a mortgage. I notice a flurry of posts looking to stick a knife where anything negative about the new government is in the press. Face the facts. Johnny and his mob completely and utterly made a total mess of the economy with their fiscal policies over the last three years. Gigantic tax breaks to those on the top dollars has seen a huge increase in discretionary spending from this group withÂ a resultant $600 Billion National Accountant Deficit. Sorry, Kevin isn't responsible after 100 days. It stems back to irresponsible policies over a long time from the group that promised they knew how to run the shop. Stop bleating and realise that the most fiscally responsible of the two parties now has the reigns. All they need to do is by some miracle clean up the mess and the legacy that the Howard government has left us.
