Does anybody really think we can afford $33 billion in tax cuts to people who earn over $180,000 per year?


https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2019/jun/10/coalitions-income-tax-plan-will-gift-highest-earners-33bn
The $33bn is an estimate over 5 years, not per year.....

The likelihood is that the GST will rise too (as it needs to). If that happens, our net tax collection will most probably rise.

Stages 1&2 will see lower income tax rates fall first. Stage 3 probably won't be passed by the senate IMHO.


So was that a yes or a no?
Who honestly knows? No one here certainly.
OER. Calling it as it is since 2004.

It suits the mods to have 65 go on a daily teary rant because like him they have been hurt by the result of the greatest political victory since the great don :shh

Nothing could be further from the truth but that doesn't suit your argument I suppose.

Actually TBH your post is offensive to me but it can stay. Calling into question our integrity around the removal of posts when the rules have been consistently applied is as I said offensive   >:(

Facts are the recent posts that were deleted in this thread and the other one on this board  were deleted because the were reported

We have applied the same criteria here that we did a few weeks back (much to many folks angst) when posts were reported. that is the reported posts being removed. It's called consistency.....

And when multiple posters post the same thing directed at on poster that is clearly baiting - we have little choice but remove them. And in case you've forgotten constant baiting of posters can lead to the issue of strikes under the sites 3 Strikes policy. In this case we have not done that; instead just removed the offending posts

As for this
Yep if we're gonna get banned for making fun of this crap then close the thread. This is baiting by 'Him'

When the same type of post (hint the word repeated was imploding) directed at a single poster repeated time and time again by multiple posters is not having a bit of fun. Under the site rules that is baiting and is not allowed

Last time I checked this thread is called "Political thread" which means people can post what they like about politics, how often they like as long as they don't break the rules. If you don't like what the person is posting either dont read it or just ignore. I know that's what i"ve done and trust me it isn't that hard ...

As a very wise lady told me growing up "Better to ignore a fool than encourage one"

If you don't agree with the post then debate the issue rather playing the man; again it isn't that hard

Sad when you have explain things to a micro level. I honestly thought people would be able to get the bloody message   :banghead

Try this ....

If someone says, writes or post something that you think is foolish or stupid, then in that instance yes you would think they are a fool... sure everyone person on this site has felt that way over the journey

So as my late Mother used to say "Better to ignore a fool than encourage one"

In other words ignore what they've written or said rather than replying and encouraging more of the same that YOU as individual thinks is foolish

So in answer to your question NO  :banghead

Reminder: If you don't want to see/read another poster's posts then place their username in your "ignore list". That's what it is there for! 

Profile -> Modify profile -> buddies/ignore list -> Edit ignore list -> Type in username and click 'add'.


Otherwise, as WP said:

Pathetic low blow post, Frank!  :thumbsdown

My 75 year old mum has been in hospital for the past 2 1/2 months and had a setback about 3-4 weeks ago. So excuse me for putting my family first over your, 65's or anyone else's political whims  ::).

Another cheap shot at the mods' integrity  >:(.

Of course not all reported posts are equal. Not every post that is reported is black & white. If the mods decide a reported post has breached the forum's guidelines then it gets edited or removed; if the mods decide it hasn't then it remains as is. The mods' decision is final.

This is a politics thread for the discussion of political issues and the only posts that have been removed are those that had nothing to do with politics.

Back to political discussion, the Senate has been finalised by the look of it.
LNP    35
ALP    26
Greens 9
PHON   2
Cen.All 2
Bernardi 1
Lambie  1

The government has a two seat majority in the House of Reps. So a net gain of one seat from 2016.
LNP     77
ALP     68
Bandt    1
Haines   1
Katter    1
Sharkie  1
Steggall 1
Wilkie    1

Unfortunately Hinch has lost his Senate seat.

But at least he's left and important and lasting legacy with the National Sex Offenders Register

Pity more pollies can't say the same
