So here is your choice – who are you going to chose to tax you to the stone age; to send you to the poor house?  This headline from the online AFR.

    Who can voters trust to manage the Budget?

    Neither of them.
    Do I get a prize?

    BS will do it quickly.
    Scomo more slowly.

    I can trust Shorten more.

    I know he’s going to screw us good and hard.

    Scomo — not deliberately, but it may happen anyway.

    Suggestion:
    Compare the growth of Commonwealth government debt, year on year, as against party in office.

    I recall seeing it resented as a graph for the years 1990 to present somewhere.

    John Howard’s final years were the only downtick in the chart.

    Afterwards, not pretty, but Labor seemed to have its nose in front of the LNP Coalition.

    The past 6 years are among the worst.

    But that’s from memory – I could be wrong.

    My point is that external forces seem to be stronger than the puny efforts of either side.

    Like asking which thief you would prefer to be robbed by.

    Tax cuts are always affordable, it’s spending that isn’t. These simpletons are incapable of grasping this obvious concept. Their fatuous bleating about there being no room for savings is an insult to anyone with basic vision and comprehension, the waste of government surrounds us like empty KFC buckets around Kim Beasley.

    Like asking which thief you would prefer to be robbed by. More like which HIV positive and herpes-infected wino you’d prefer to bum you, then rifle your wallet and steal your trousers. While you’ve been ball gagged, so you can’t deny consent.

    I saw a Liberal ad last night about the budget.

    It said that under Labor we had deficits and debts, but under the Liberals we will have a budget surplus.

    Its as if the last 6 years just didn’t happen.

  9. The writer should look across the pond and see what tax cuts have achieved.

    Be very scared – the alp will introduce death taxes and tax the sale of your PPR.
    This is a green objective.

    Be very scared – the alp will introduce death taxes and tax the sale of your PPR.
    This is a green objective.

    Such taxes were Greens platform, at one stage.

    Is the LNP’s PARTIAL return of bracket creep affordable? FMD. We’re completely boned if this is the anal-ysis from the “quality” meeja.

    Labor is obviously playing on inter-generational tensions and resentment, but they seem to forget that the “rich” oldies they are targeting have children and grandchildren, and that those younger voters tend to have a fairly good grasp of what side their bread is buttered on.

    All we need is for the rumour about Labor’s post-election plan to re-introduce death duties to take off, and a much larger group of younger voters will be reviewing where they stand on “inter-generational equity”……

    The point is that either party are reckless and irresponsible.

    Australians need to stop voting for the major party cartel.
