Simon Breheny, director of policy at the Institute of Public Affairs, nails it. Tax cuts aren’t handouts, as Bill Shorten suggests, not unless the government owns everything you earn.
Tax cuts are… not giveaways. They’re not subsidies, or grants, or donations… Tax cuts just mean people get to keep more of what they earn. Tax cuts don’t give you money earned by somebody else.
