Budget 2015: Winners and losers
Stung by the reaction to last year’s budget, the Government is instead relying on rosy economic conditions to return it to surplus.
In a much more subdued effort than last year’s budget, small business and national security are the big winners.
While many of the contentious aspects of last year’s budget, such as the hits to welfare, remain, the Government has tempered further attempts to claw back revenue, and is banking on its generous childcare shake-up to calm the electorate.
