Comments on Alan Kohler “Don't waste the boom, Mr Rudd”, 13/04/2010, http://www.businessspectator.com.au/bs.nsf/Article/GFC-budget-Australian-recovery-pd20100413-4FS9H?OpenDocument&src=sph
Further, while some people including you are saying in hindsight that Howard / Costello didn't do this or that with revenue, they set up the future fund, they reduced tax, as opposed to Rudd / Swan wasting taxpayers' money in house insulation, in BER, in NBN, and etc.
It is so easy to criticise the past, but why don't people focus on what is happening now?
Is it purely trying to please the current government and the people in charge now?
It is so low politics and not looking good for media commentators.
