Abbott promises public sector cuts

Abbott promises public sector cuts

Opposition Leader Tony Abbott has re-committed to public sector job cuts if the Coalition wins the federal election, saying the sector has become too bloated under a Labor government.

Speaking at an economics committee in Sydney today, Mr Aabbott has outlined  the Opposition’s economic policies, and how he will save the Australian economy billions of dollars.

As well as public sector jobs cuts, he says the Coalition will also scrap the school kids bonus for parents, and cut the plan to increase Australia’s refugee intake by 6000 per year.

He’s also taken aim at the government’s mining tax again, saying the Gillard government is in denial if it thinks the mining tax is an effective policy.

Mr Abbott says the only result the Australian people will see from the mining tax, is an increase in other taxes.
