He gave some of it to people who were out of work because of covid. He gave the rest to dole bludging lefties who already were doing fuck all before the pandemic.
So only the lefty dole bludgers got money? The poor righties got none? Must remember to check the correct "political leaning" box if I ever need to apply for the dole.

Seems to me a shitload of Morrison's historically large deficit has gone directly to business. His billions in tax cuts don't go to the unemployed at all. The cost of JobSeeker has been a drop in the ocean compared to the cost of JobKeeper and the cash flow boost, both of which have massively assisted businesses and have not, by design, delivered a cent to unemployed people.

Government largess to business is a right!

You commie loving anti Australian!

Exactly- it was to keep it circulating in the economy - and it achieved that.  I am sure plenty of that extra job seeker went on VB, Jack Danials,  durries, pukholha weed and on the punt. All worthy industries.

Fuck me 11 more Victorian cases today.  Do people not understand how little is within 5km of my house?

No wonder everyone else is fudging the rules.

Is it just me, or is it just a tiny bit odd that while the Gubmint is spending waaaaaaay more money than its getting in the door, producing the bigiest budget deficit in the history of budget deficits, they are cutting taxes? Ah well, my grandkids and great grandkids will enjoy paying for that, I'm sure...

That is the beauty of it. They don't have to pay it back and no one is going to go around to the Prime Ministers house with a baseball bat and repossess his Government limo. The debt just gets smaller as GDP grows. Fucked if I know how but it is cheaper than the old printing money lark. No paper or ink required.

Dark,

When the NSW CMO estmates that in Sydney, one is about 8x more likely to be killed by a lightning strike than by community acquired covid....

Overreacting just a smidge..

Ah yes - someone else can pay for it. How very left of you.

Because interest rates are at historic lows and because they are borrowing locally, getting into debt is not such a big deal. If they didn't cut taxes then they would spend the extra money earned anyway. It is the right approach in this current environment and the only real question is that whether they are focusing the spending in the right direction.

I'd rather the borrow approach than the belt tightening approach from the past.

If you could guarantee that a big chunk of your income will always be coming in and you can tie the banks into a fixed low rate of interest for the next 20 years, you would be mad to not borrow big and invest.

Unfortunately we can not guarantee our income and the banks will only give us fixed rate loans for a couple of years.

Leftwits don't like the fact that the Liberals are taking a very unLiberal approach now, so they can only nitpick rather then can the overall strategy.
