    Geez. Don’t these clowns now that it is MY money that the government is taking. And I would prefer more of it in MY pocket than in the hands of the pink brigade. Sheez, they really take the apparent high ground that my money is theirs to do with want they want.

    A $140bn tax handout!

    Most ABC & Fairfax senior economics correspondents would agree with GetUp.

    These neo-Communists believe all wealth belongs to government.

    Let’s see what the Labia Pardee does when they get in.

    I think GetUp should be reported to the Press Council because there is no way that Malcolm Turnbull would believe in a tax reduction.

    The dumb, the brainwashed , Get up………..get fucked.

    So fucking Dumb.
    Get in here and explain why keeping my money means government is giving up what it never had.
    Monty, put that donut down and get in here.

  6. Bruce of Newcastle

    I have an idea for a new GetUp slogan:

    War is peace
    Freedom is slavery
    Ignorance is strength

    Fits pretty well.

    The top four in the photos will be tried “fairly” found guilty and executed ,get up operatives are iCuba now learning excecution methods from the peoples secret police killers . Suppose that sosros (_schwartz) and his union mafia comrades are funding getup scum.

  8. I think I may have to change my voting intention and go for the LNP afterall. And with millennials supporting this crap, we may end up having something akin to Brexit next election (I hope).

    In reality, that’s an understatement.
    The “handout” is what a taxpayer contributes to government revenues. The income tax package is more accurately a $140bn reduction in tax handouts to government.
    Of course, to be effective it should be matched to a similar and selective reduction in government spending- preferably that spending which would deliver the least value over the long term.
    Bill Shorten may think that a taxpayer’s wealth actually belongs entirely to government, so that any income a taxpayer is allowed to keep is in effect a government handout, but I really would like to hear him argue that case in Parliament.

    They see their trough draining.

    If they are talking about reducing company tax, then any Australian shareholders make up the difference in their personal tax. It’s a wash.

    It only makes a difference to foreign shareholders, but not even a big difference to them because they usually sell before the dividend comes through and buy back afterwards, often picking up a capital gain on the share in that process.

  12. Dr Fred Lenin

    A party political announcement ;
    If elected my government will forego $653 trillion dollars over the next 865 years “ , spending will be increased by 973 percent per year , seasonally adjusted ,you lucky people ,vote for the Fiscal Responsiblity Party ,vire early. Vote often and vote for us . Frep the way to go .

  13. Robbo

    Shorten, Wong, Di Natale and Storer. Now there is a list of nuff nuffs and losers. Only people with no working brain cells would vote for any of them.

  14. Whalehunt Fun

    Again these filthy scum prove that capital punishment is a necessary component of civil society. The torture til recantation followed by public execution of filth like getup and any person genetically descended from them would be not merely beneficial and entertaining, but the sale of tickets and the auctioning of the rights to be the torturer and or executioner would be an additional revenue stream that could be used to offset further taxcuts. Think of it: getup giving up their lives in so as to provide tax cuts to their betters. Wonderful.

  15. John Constantine

    An activist cell of Foreign Funded Fighters, out to sabotage and soften up Old Australia, undermining the defences from within to get ready for the Big Revolutionary Push.

    They don’t really care about money [ after the revolution of course, there will be no money except for the currency of being a Revolutionary Leader] it is just a weapon of Warring Down the enemy.

    Comrades.

  16. Iampeter

    Hey excellent “grrr GetUp!” post.
    Suggestions for future political posts:
    “Grrrr Labor!”
    “Grrr globalists!”

    It’s sure is fun spending half your day reading and thinking about “politics” in order to pretend to talk about it on the internet isn’t it?

    Keep up the good work Sparty.

  17. André M

    The case would be made clearer if it turned out that there was a Liberal or National party MP who voted against the tax package and yet is not shown in the “stood strong ” category.

  18. mh

    Iampeter hasn’t had a good day.

    Soros is a donor to GetUp and Iampeter has never seen a Soros fund that he didn’t like.

  19. Marcus

    Joke’s on GetUp. The only senator there who’s up for re-election next time around is Tim Storer.

    Any idea of how much foreign money (& from whom) flows through to Getup?

    Spartacus thinks you are right Iampeter. Spartacus has been spending too much time on Catallaxy and is on a break for a while.

  22. mh

    Fat Tony, I know Soros was funding GetUp during the 2016 Fed election. Soros wanted Peter Dutton gone as Dutton is seen as an obstacle to open borders. I expect GetUp tries to keep donor amounts private.

  23. jock

    No party that represents those that pay no tax has a right to say anything about spending or talk about helping those in need.

  24. Percy Popinjay

    iampoofter, pol dot, sdfc, munty, numbnuts, et al:

    “I’m an illiterate*, innumerate, ahistorical tax hoovering imbecile who’s beyond parody and I stand strong against the capitalist thievery of the government’s money, I tells ya!”

    Yep – they truly are that pathetic.

    *Quote transcribed due to the aforementioned state and tacher** gifted illiteracy.

    **Deliberate.

    Socialists on the top row.

    Communists on the bottom row.

    Some choice.

  26. Habib

    Seeing as Get Up is (de)composed of geriatric, superannuated public servants who’ve never produced anything except idiotic rules, economic mischief, and more of their kind and are thus utterly dependent on the fiscal fiend filching more and more of your beer vouchers, they’re hardly likely to endorse some lifestyle subsidies slipping through their palsied paws.

  27. Dianeh

    How many Getup members do you think are mouthing off against the tax cuts but secretly happy they will benefit from Them?

  28. Rob MW

    “……..transformative investments…………..”

    edward sharpe and the magnetic zeros free stuff

    People, either individually or collaboratively make transformative investments not governments you brain dead fuckwits.

    Please tell me when I voted for the Greens rabz. I did a guest post outlining why they are crippling primary industries and ought to always be put last.

    Half the posts I make here now are concern over the deficit and spending. I used to often wax lyrical on why we need tax cuts, reform and abolition to generate higher productivity.

    Your umbrage is confusing to say the least.

  31. iainrussell

    $tinking $oro$-bot$. The sooner there is an enquiry into foreign interference in Oz politics the better.

    All you need to know really.

    LOL – back to the caves with no return.
    The big dieback of our species is what they want as long as it doesn’t include them.

    In perhaps the biggest political scandal since WikiLeaks, a group of hackers has dumped hundreds of files exposing the influence of socialist billionaire George Soros on Western politics.

    The files show Soros has established a transnational network that pressures governments to adopt high immigration targets and porous border policies that could pose a challenge to legitimate state sovereignty. His Open Society Foundations target individuals who criticise ­Islamism and seek to influence the outcome of national elections by undermining Right-leaning politicians. The Australian arm of the Soros network is GetUp!.

    GetUp! was established by ­activists Jeremy Heimans and David Madden with funding from Soros…

    …GetUp! has engaged in an ­effective reframing of politics by rebranding conservatives as the hard Right while recasting the Left as moderate or progressive. Many sections of the media have uncritically adopted GetUp!’s rhetoric, which effectively divides the Coalition by aligning conservatives falsely with a range of hard-Right views that they abhor.

    …Documents uncovered by Soros leaks reveal a pattern of funding for programs that prosecute porous borders, mass immigration into the Wes­t nations from Islamist regions, and overt campaigns against dissenters.
