Rewriting history again. Give it up Shane, you have no idea. I'm not going through all this same old same old with you when you take absolutely no notice of links to evidence refuting your ideological bias. If any one else wants to bore themselves to death with repetitious nonsense there more than welcome. See how many takers you get.
If you so disagree and cannot be bothered to say why, then why bother even posting?
Is this another one of your waffle posts of no substance?
Oh disagree but cannot be bothered explaining why you disagree because maybe not a leg to stand on as it goes against your misaligned ideology, again?
Or are you again trying and failing to justify why Swan who multiple times predicted a balanced budget but failed to do so was still borrowing money in a booming economy 4 years after the GFC?
As I said before, few opposed the spending by Rudd, a cash cow handed to him by the previously govt and I'd rather the govt to borrow money to fix a short term hole than see 100,000's loose their jobs. However the choices of how that was spent and the inability for the govt of the day to rein in spending over the following years in a booming economy with a dollar out of control chasing failed extra tax revenue schemes is what most people critise the Rudd/Gillard/Rudd govt for doing.
