Labor’s Slip, Slop, Slap campaign: No change to Super turns into $34b in 24 hours.

Bill Shorten pledge for ‘no increased tax’ at odds with Labor superannuation policy

“We have no plans to increase taxes on superannuation,” Mr Shorten said on Tuesday while campaigning in South Australia. But the government estimates the Labor changes would increase tax revenue by $34 billion over a decade, although an earlier Labor estimate put the revenue at $19 billion. The tax changes have been part of the Labor policy platform for several years and include changing tax concessions as well as applying a higher tax on some individuals, putting them at odds with Mr Shorten’s claim”

Bill Shorten ‘lying’ about tax increases

“On Wednesday, Finance Minister Mathias Cormann said Shorten’s claim was ‘manifestly untrue’, because ‘Labor is planning $34 billion in higher taxes on superannuation which of course comes on top of $57 billion in higher taxes targeting retirees‘.

Comment: The practice of releasing through a ‘spokesman’ is typical Labor behaviour. No eye contact, no questions and no accountability and no-one can say later that Shorten himself said that.
