The people’s verdict:What you made of the NSW budget

From our readers

“It’s a well-balanced and well-thought-out budget by a smart treasurer and top-shelf premier. Unlike the self-obsessed Liberals this looks like it’s a budget that … tries genuinely to deal with reality – housing,GP bulk-billing,bush health services – head on.”
Baz Milas

“Just the beginning,but at least a step in the right direction.”
Richard Lynch

“The commitment on social housing is admirable. If Matt Kean is accusing Labor of overspending on this – what’s his alternative? Continue to turn a blind eye to the thousands of homeless?”
Adrienne Carlson
