It is so fascinating that the government excluded the GST from the Henry tax review, but before the release the review report it announced a takeover of 30% of the GST from the States.
And Swan wants to discuss with his State counterparts on the health plan detail that include the 30% of GST takeover by the fed, but does not inform them about the review report that, presumably contains recommendations on reforms of many State taxes.
Does anyone believe Swan is serious or the Rudd government is genuine with the States and the public on its health plan without relevant information?
I beg nobody does.
