WHAT DID MORRISON DO WITH YOUR MONEY!

Scott Morrison's mismanagement of his own JobKeeper program has led to some of the biggest waste of taxpayer money in the nation's history.

 

Scott Morrison refused to answer questions about the $38 billion, and counting, of taxpayer dollars handed to companies that increased turnover during the pandemic. They did not need the money. The Morrison governments gave them free money with no strings attached.

JobKeeper was the biggest one-off program in Australian history, costing the average Australian household $9,000. It wasn't Liberal Party money; it was taxpayer money, and taxpayers have a right to know how it was spent. In Britain taxpayers know every firm that got their Job Retention Scheme. In New Zealand taxpayers know every firm that got the COVID Wage Subsidy. In the United States taxpayers know every firm that got money through the Paycheck Protection Program.
