Tax cut zombies

Dear DomPost. Your headline today, in very large letters, said "$4b in tax cuts coming".

People might read that, and think that there are $4b in tax cuts coming.

Except that it's $4b in tax cuts, funding by $4b in tax hikes.

Lemme do the maths for you.

$4b - $4b = $0

$0. That's what "revenue neutral" means.

Has half a decade of mindless calls for "taaax cuuut... taaax cuuuutss..." rotten your brain so much that you're starting to see tax cuts everywhere you look? Does your cat look like a tax cut to you?
