Sigh… Giving taxpayers’ and profit makers’ money to the unproductive members of society, again. They’re just making the stupidity of the carbon tax even worse for employment and productivity. If their purpose was to sabotage Australia’s economy this government has been brilliant.
THE Gillard government has sought to reconnect with voters angry about the carbon tax and the cost of living with a budget that axes planned tax cuts for big business and instead hands out another $5 billion in cost-of-living assistance to low- and middle-income earners.
The rise in cost-of-living outlays takes to $20 billion the total in tax cuts, bonuses and higher payments that low- and middle-income earners will receive during the next four years.
