White must explain $500 million black hole
 

You just can't trust Labor with money.

Labor has already racked up over $500 million* in unfunded promises and they can't explain how they would pay for them.

The truth is they don't have a clue how to manage a budget and clearly they wouldn't be able to deliver.

Last time there was a Labor-Green minority government, they posted the biggest budget deficits in Tasmanian history, plunged the State into recession, destroyed 10,000 jobs and left behind a $1.1 billion budget black hole.

Ms White must come clean and admit she can't pay for her promises.

Under the Hodgman Government, we have balanced the budget, turned the economy around and created thousands of jobs.

And unlike Labor and the Greens, we can say exactly how we will pay for all of our election policies.
