More nonsense from re-announcement addict Truss

Today in Question Time, Transport Minister Warren Truss spouted yet more nonsense to provide cover for his failure to actually do something in infrastructure.

Mr Truss suggested that Labor opposed the Roads to Recovery program. The fact is that Labor increased funding for this program in Government.

In the 2013-14 Budget, the former Labor Government also ensured that the increased funding was provided for all of the forward estimates years.

Mr Truss has spent the past fortnight making pathetic attempts to pretend projects in their second year of construction such as Gateway WA were new initiatives.

The fact is that just like the Roads to Recovery program, the funding has already been provided by the former Labor government.
