Another bit of vacuous advocacy for the public-money-wasting and debt-encouraging “first home-buyer’s grant” from a newspaper company dependent on the favour of real estate agents:
Home buyers grant smaller, but still popular
Australians are continuing to take up the federal government’s first home owners grant in droves, undeterred by its October reduction.
Well, they’re not turning down free money on which the people against whom they’re bidding are also relying, obviously.
But that doesn’t mean it’s “popular” – they’d be vastly better off if it didn’t exist at all. They wouldn’t be forced to plunge further into debt because of the extra borrowing power it gives their opponents. Many realise that. And many of us will vote for whichever party promises to get rid of it.
Those of us who aren’t real estate agents, anyway.
