The Federal Budget was handed down on 3rd May 2016, and without going into too much detail, one news article got my attention. The big problem with the $80k tax cut.
The budget will see income tax bracket increase from $80,000 to $87,000 which will, according to the news article, provide an extra $315 per year to those who earn that amount.
The interesting thing that caught my eye was the Greens MP Adam Bandts comments that those who earn over $80k are wealthy.
“Greens MP Adam Bandt has slammed the Government for offering this relief to wealthy Australians while ignoring those who need it. We don’t need it. Ordinary Australians do and they miss out in this Budget, he said.”
So Adam, you think Paramedics, Nurses, Police and other frontline public servants are not ordinary Australians? You think those who earn $80k are rich scum and should be taxed out of prosperity? As a frontline public servant I am absolutely offended and disgusted about these comments and his ascertions that because someone earns $80k it means that they don’t deserve a tax break.
About time people start waking up the menace of the Green monster that is infiltrating our political arena. The Greens are scum, and only prey on the weak and vulnerable. Given that over 50% of Australian voters receive some sort of taxpayer handouts the Green thrive on this. They don’t want to see Australians further their prosperity they would rather see people suffer and rely on taxpayers to ensure their political survival. This is clearly evident by Adams out of touch comments he made to News Ltd.
