My question is to the Minister representing the Prime Minister, Senator Wong. During the 2022 election campaign, Mr Albanese said, 'We've said we have no intention of making any super changes'. Given Labor's track record of proposing higher taxes on retirees at the previous two elections, it is inconceivable that Labor wasn't planning its doubling of the super tax, or something very similar, when Mr Albanese made this promise at the last election. Minister, why is it that Mr Albanese deceived the Australian people before asking them to vote for him?
