I find it odd – well actually I don’t – that none of the MSM have picked up on Julie Bishop’s comment yesterday where she said:
Well, it would depend what the package included, but we would be urging the government to include in any stimulus package tax cuts, broad and sweeping tax cuts that will increase the tax base and increase tax revenues.
Imagine if Rudd, Swan or Tanner said that. The MSM media would be all over it.
Update: Peter Martin references the comment in The Age.
