Deficit and the Debt

71% of Green voters want the government to balance its books.

During the 2019 federal election I supported the Green Party position to balance the federal budget over five years. That target must now be adjusted due to the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, but our goal as Greens should still be to live within our means whenever possible with a target of paying off our debt. The millions we pay in interest alone should be used to help our people.
