The day started off with
Carbon tax may be unconstitutional: Abbott : World News Australia on SBS
Then I watched question time
Member for Ryan: Can PM advise why school children on buses will pay carbon tax and children in their parents cars will not
PM: No No The tax is not direct - we have computed that into the income tax cuts so parents will be reimbursed
Alas PM you made the point yourself - the parents with cars will get the tax cut so will the parents whose kids travel on the buses but they will have to use the cut to pay the fare increase ie the Carbon Tax whereas the car drivers will be able to use the cuts to buy whatever they want...... a holiday
And of course even that is based on the computation work that increases will be offset by the income tax cuts.. How long before the carbon price means everyone pays....
of course to me the only point of a carbon tax is to force people out of the bad energy BUT INTO WHAT?
Do something about global warming and stop playing around with this silly tax
