The 2017/18 Federal Budget backs small business and includes more funding for regional schools, strong investment regional road and rail infrastructure, and for strengthening our communities.
It also holds the big banks to account.
We make no apology for tapping the big banks on the shoulder. It's not fair that everyday Australians, mums and dads and small business owners do all the heavy lifting.
It's time they pulled their weight, give back to the Australian people and help fix the crushing debt left by Labor.
The big banks have already begun their scare campaign – and will have millions of dollars to fund it.
We will need every dollar we can to fight back and hold them to account.
Together with your help, we will continue to fight hard to protect regional communities and ensure the big end of town pays their fair share.
