50. Debt limit to be increased to $250 billion and rising – to pay for all of this and much more

This was copied from an email, author unknown. To add the Queensland Labor mistakes and waste of money would at least double this list.

Queensland is now $85 billion in debt. For those of you who remember when Howard was voted in the Australian debt was $95 Billion, it took the Liberal Federal Government 10 years to pay the money back. How long is it going to take for Queensland (You and me) to pay this money back.

If you think deficit spending is the way for Governments to go, just check out the financial situation of the governments in Europe.

Don't be fooled this is going to cost us, our children and our grand children.

A vote for Russell McVey or any other person who decides to stand for Direct Democracy where Queenslanders and Australians will have the power of veto over Government decisions. Always trust yourself to make the right decision.
