The Cons cut taxes and cut government revenue immediately after forming their first government in what, 2006 or so. They did not have to do that.

In 2009-2012 - they then would not have been in as bad a place as they were - since they placed themselves there.

The Cons just could not stand having balanced/surplus budgets which I would have agreed with if our debt was not so high.
