Labor must ‘tweak’ budget to bring ‘good reforms’ into government

Australian Financial Review policy reporter Tom McIlroy says if Labor can “tweak” some of the budgetary adjustments and if living standards “relieve” then it could potentially be a “good start” for the new government.

“It’s a multi-year process, it’s a tough political sell,” McIlroy said.

“If Jim Chalmers can roll back some of the generous tax adjustments without scaring the horses, without inciting a huge coalition fear campaign.

“These are the building blocks for really good government reform, a really good tenure.”
