How did Rudd miss Abbott's giant tax grab?

The Coalition’s investor tax grab is merely the latest in a string of shrewd tax shifts designed to fill gaps in its major policy costings. And last night, Rudd let Abbott off scot free.

The Coalition’s refusal to release its costings for major policies is dishonest, underhanded, and highly effective as a political strategy. However, even without all the figures it’s clear that an incoming Abbott government wants to increase taxes then shift the burden around a bit, rather than 'cut' them.
