I blame Swanny.
Swanny, I said, " let's scream about a horror budget, make them think we're fiscally responsible. You know that Economic conservative stuff. Tackling the hard issues, paying off debt."
"Frame a budget that holds my approval rating in the 60's."
I get trashed in the polls after attacking wealthy Australia with a feather and making working families work a couple more years before they get a miserable pension.
I think they believed the spin - hey Australia nothing happened - no horror story here!
I'm terrifed about what might happen if I ever have to start paying back this debt. Seems like we're back to square one - no hard decisions for me.
All this looks like another stimulus package before the election.
