It's time to 'curb the cost' of the stimulus measures | Sky News AustraliaThe Australian's Adam Creighton says'it is time now to think about curbing the cost' of the government's stimulus measures announced at the height of the coronavirus crisis.\n\nMr Creighton said the JobKeeper program 'seemed wise back in March' but now with growing optimism 'we're going to be reopening sooner', the full six-month period announced for the record $130 billion 'in borrowed money' is a little 'over the top'.\n\n'In hindsight, the federal government will come to look wise for their measured approach in dealing with the coronavirus crisis in Australia.'\n\nState premiers pushed for more stringent and lengthy restrictions earlier in the process - reminiscent of European-style lockdowns - which may have proved even more economically damaging for the Australian economy. \n\n'I think the federal government's been proved right to be a little more cautious,' Mr Creighton said.\n\nImage: News Corp Australia\n\n It is time now to think about forcing corporations to actually pay tax. That will well and truly pay back the money spent on stimulus. Rubbish, I want free money and lots of it The Australian's Adam Creighton a moron.
