Labor caught lying over health funding

Opposition Press Releases

Daniel Andrews and Labor have once again been caught lying to the Victorian community, this time over the former Liberal Nationals’ health funding.

This afternoon RMIT ABC Fact Check has smashed apart Labor’s claims that “the Victorian Liberals cut a billion dollars from health when they were last in office” factually finding the statement is wrong.

In fact, under the Liberal Nationals, health spending grew from $7.4 billion in 2009-10 to $8.7 billion in 2014-15.

The average annual increase over the five years was $264 million, while the cumulative extra spending over the period was $4.1 billion.

Daniel Andrews lied about not introducing new taxes; lied about not introducing ice and heroin injecting rooms and lied when he said cancelling the East West Link would not cost taxpayers any money.

He has now been caught red-faced lying to the Victorian community about health funding. It is just another example that when it comes to Daniel Andrews and Labor, they just lie.
