Spiralling debt will end badly for State Treasurer

WHAT does Jackie Trad the State Treasurer think she is doing?

Raising state debt to $91 billion and increasing tax for several key businesses and hitting motorists with yet another hike in registration costs.

This is her second budget and the worst budget this state has ever had to endure.

It's almost as if she has been talking to Chris Bowen and getting taxing tips.

The budget is in typical Labor tradition increasing taxes and borrowing funds at the same time.

It appears the government has no plan to pay off debt and that is why debt is spiralling out of control.

We will all find ourselves paying more for nearly everything including power, vehicle registration, gas, fuel and it will even cost us more to dump rubbish at the local tip.

This high-taxing government needs to be chucked out at the next election which can't come too soon.

The Queensland economy is in a terrible mess thanks to Labor.
