SA Treasurer is $80 million Short

Posted on: October 8, 2009

Only $80 Million? I challenge the Treasurer to tell the truth. There is a $8 billion debt owed to the PS that is on record to be “on track by 2034” and almost $1.6 billion to Work Cover. Mr. Foley,you have over 8000 Govt cars in your portfolio with 7 accidents a day costing $1.7 million to fix and you recently spent $52 million for the Clipsal/Gerrard property and $6 million each for trams that are less complicated than 270 ton electric dump trucks at $4 million.Furthermore, they could have been built here in Tonsley.

The software system contracted in 2002 for $22 million due for completion in 2011 has blown out to $45 million and is far away from completion. Did you or did you not divert $80 million from the specific bequests to the RAH Research programme to that other hospital project? There are 125,000 public servant recipients being paid $285 million a year with hundreds in the waiting room for re assignment on full pay for many years yet, your administration added an extra 16,000 plus.

This Labor Government policy has abused the efforts of barely 800,000 residents who, by their personal and corporate effort, provide your revenue. You lost $2.9 billion of it from “investments” instead of paying the bills.
