Treasurer Jim Chalmers said that the surplus budget will have “new energy rebates and more rent assistance”, all to assist “the most vulnerable”. However, the Greens have pushed back saying that surplus is merely a ploy, noting that the $9.3 billion could have been used  to assist Australians in dire straits.
