Prime Minister knew he'd break tax cut promise

June 04, 2019

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has been caught red-handed lying to voters about his election promise to deliver tax cuts for low and middle-income earners on July 1.

A report today has revealed PM Morrison knew since the election was called that he couldn’t pass his tax cuts on time, because of the date he himself had proposed for the return of the writs.
We now know the Prime Minister never intended to keep his promise.
What makes this even more disgraceful is that he reassured voters multiple times that he would honour it.
The Prime Minister and the Treasurer have serious questions to answer.
The Liberals need to come clean about what they knew and why they never intended to follow through on such a key commitment.
