Francois Hackson:
Now this is an absolute joke this new Tax because as we know with all new taxes its here to stay.

Why cant we reduce our offshore payments for a start instead of further putting families at risk of bankrupcy.

Its a farce and Gillard is becoming one also. She is gawnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn  by next election



WilliamPowell:
Do I like it = NO

Agree about your comment about foreign aid daniel ... but bankruptcy ... please give me a break

I don't think an extra $50 a year for someone on what was it $50k a year is going to send people to the wall. As one of the news sites said it's a couple of slabs or what some people will spend on smokes in a week ;D

Personally I'll be paying a fair bit more than $50 and if it's going to help rebuild people's lives then so be it. 

At the end of the day it needs to be done, let's get it done and if in the process some of these half baked "green" programs get pushed to one side then all the better  ;D

Its more than $50 id say its closer to $250 for people on a 50k salary.

Im sorry it doesn't need to be done, i mean using our money part of it.

Why cant they use their own money instead of asking us to fork out money just so they look good and keep their surplus.

This tax will more than likely last beyond a year and Gillard will last 2 and a bit. Labour are gone in a landslide.
