Anthony Albanese rejects further revisions to Labor’s stage-three tax cuts package

In order to gain cross-party support, Anthony Albanese appeared to rule out further adjustments to Labor’s tax policy, such as increasing the tax rate on high-income earners.

On Sunday, the prime minister said he was “very confident” that the new proposal would pass parliament, despite the Greens’ call to boost the tax-free threshold and senator David Pocock’s suggestion that more money be spent on income support.

In an interview with Sky News, Albanese stated that the opposition leader, Peter Dutton, “wouldn’t rule out him voting for it” – a further indication that the Liberals are backing away from prior claims that they would oppose and attempt to overturn the cutbacks.
