Blinking Bill

The ALP has blinked on tax policy:

Labor has responded to the government’s decision to drop plans for a 0.5 percent hike in the Medicare Levy to fund the NDIS by dropping its own plans to increase the levy for those earning more than $87,000.

    Peanut Head will be taking plenty of tax increases to the next election. Just not for those that don’t pay much if any tax anyway.

    All the Liars are Corbynistas now.

    As midnight filth said, once they get in, they can change everything then.

    I bet that the MSM will not refer to Labor’s policy change as a BLACKFLIP.

    Sounds like BS.

    Of course he will raise taxes.

    The SFLs should cut income taxes, use the Wayne Goosestein Treasury models to announce “Four years of surpluses … ” and leave the Liars to raise taxes again to fund their rorts.

    BS says no tax increases under his govt. BS has said there will not be a tax increase while he leads the federal government. … “There will be no tax increase under the government I lead”

    BS says no tax increases under his govt.

    So has he backed down from his threat to impose a minimum tax rate of 30% on trust distributions?

    Tit for Tat….

    It says a lot doesn’t it!

    Either the taxes were needed or they weren’t!
    So Libs drop their tax measure…and the ALP matches by dropping their measure.
    Just like a couple of kindergarten kids, except they are supposed to be the leaders of this country! FMD!

    We are being governed by imbeciles (I know there was no need for me to state that – it just makes me feel better), all MPs’, regardless of party affiliation should be embarrassed about being a part of this current rabble.

    what a load of bulshit!

    It’s not the scrapping of a tax hike, it’s a “saving”.

  12. John Constantine

    Their shorten looting cartel have a hundred words for the government taking resources from the proles that are not spelt ‘tax’.

  13. Shouldn’t it be ANOTHER 0.5% hike in the Medicare levy to pay for the NDIS? Or am I imagining the original hike enacted by the Rancid Ranga and her coterie of tax hoovering turds?

  14. Up The Workers!

    Oh Heavens forfend.

    Bull Shitten, Leader of the Australian Liars Party, caught shamelessly gillarding once again for all he’s worth (which isn’t much).

    Tell me it isn’t so!

    Which was supported at the time by that political genius Abbott.

    Looks like both wings of the National Gangrene Lieberal party are I’m agreement. The shorten union mafia left a nd the turnbull silvertail left left , are going to borrow more money to give away on “Tax cuts”,and forget the main thing “Spending cuts”.
    We will go to any legnths to save our “brilliant careers in politics”. ( spending cuts cost preference votes)
