Delivering for you

Consistent with our community’s forward-looking, modern liberal values, Tim has fought for the economic, social and environmental progress for our community and Australia. Here’s a summary of what Tim and the Coalition Government has achieved for you since 2016.

An economic dividend

SMASHING UNEMPLOYMENT

More than 1.1 million more Australians are in jobs since this Government was elected. Nearly 60% of these have been full time jobs. 100,200 more jobs for 15-24 year olds were created in the 12 months to June 2018. This was the strongest result of any financial year on record (since 1979).

DELIVERING TAX RELIEF

We are making taxes lower, simpler and fairer. In 2018-19, around 4.4 million Australians will get tax relief of $530 per year. Over 10 million taxpayers will get some tax relief. Our legislated plan means that after seven years 94% of taxpayers will pay no more than 32.5 cents in the dollar.

international engagement

We are locking in the benefits of historic trade agreements with China, Japan, Indonesia, Hong Kong and South Korea. Australian exporters will benefit from the new Trans-Pacific Partnership – an Agreement between 11 major economies in our region (worth $13.7 trillion).

The social dividend

MARRIAGE EQUALITY IS THE LAW OF THE LAND

We legislated for marriage equality with the overwhelming support from the Australian people. This debate was always about the type of country we wanted to be, and Australia owns it. Goldstein delivered the highest per capita participation rate in the nation and delivered a 76.3 per cent 'yes' response. We have moved on together.

GUARANTEED ESSENTIAL MEDICAL SERVICES

We have delivered a fully funded NDIS with no increase in the Medicare Levy. We introduced, and passed, the Medicare Guarantee Act that bakes funding for Medicare and the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme into the force of law.

 Our new Medicare Guarantee Fund ensures their ongoing funding. Proceeds from the Medicare levy will now be paid into the Fund and topped up with a portion of income tax revenue. This ensures we meet the combined cost of the Medicare Benefits Schedule and Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme.

We are backing Medicare and ensuring that Australians get the care they need. That’s why the GP bulk billing rate is now at 86.1% – up from when Labor was last in government.

We have delivered over 133 million free GP services.

 

An environmental dividend

REDUCING EMISSIONS

We are leading the transition to cleaner energy generation — our investment in Snowy 2.0 will power the equivalent of 500,000 homes during peak demand. This puts downward pressure on wholesale electricity prices and ensures we are generating affordable, reliable clean energy.

Australia’s $11 billion investment last year in clean energy placed us seventh in the world (third on a per capita basis).

Renewable energy will reach 23.5% of Australia’s electricity supply by 2020. There are enough renewable projects underway now to meet that target.

Australia will meet the emissions requirements of the Paris Agreement. Australia beat its first Kyoto target by 128 million tonnes of greenhouse gases. We are on track to beat our 2020 target by 294 million tonnes.

CLIMATE SOLUTIONS FUND

On 25 February 2019, the Coalition Government established a Climate Solutions Fund to provide an additional $2 billion to continue purchasing low-cost abatement, build on the success of the Emissions Reduction Fund and continue the momentum to reach Australia’s 2030 emissions reduction target. The additional funding ensures Australian farmers, businesses and Indigenous communities continue to have opportunities to undertake emissions reduction projects that provide local benefits.
