Yes but there should be a broader strategy for reducing national debt, not by solely focusing on reducing national spending in the areas of foreign aid and education for example, but by identifying areas across the board where money could be saved, e.g. military, reducing the general revenue assistance given to the states, reducing dramatically the funding of private education and providing states and territories with more power over education, altering retirement benefits of government officials (e.g. revoking the Life Gold Pass Entitlements of retired parliamentarians).

@8ZQRRNS answered…7mos

Perhaps we needed to strike a much greater balance between the economy and public health. I do not know the numbers of direct Covid deaths but I feel that if we looked at that and the amount of debt we have now incurred we might think it was an overreaction. Certainly reducing our military spending if we have to start somewhere.

From what I have seen & heard, the rich normally having a business/s can reduce their taxable income
with deductions which are truly personal use. Example, taken family members to dinner & claim as an expense. Use a 4wd company car for the purpose of holidays. All expense deductible
