With the Gillard government is becoming increasingly desperate to cling to power and force the public to accept their carbon tax (which they lied about), they have resorted to trying to demoralise the electorate.
PRIME Minister Julia Gillard says she doesn’t expect the Liberal Party to repeal the carbon tax should it win the next federal election…
“Should Tony Abbott be elected PM, watch for the weasel words, crabwalk back,” Ms Gillard told News Limited papers.
“(He’ll say it’s) all too difficult … it’s all too hard, I can’t do it now.”
If Labor can convince voters that either way, they are stuck with the carbon tax, the choice becomes less clear. The government now has no choice but to take away our hope that the carbon tax can be repealed.By making the tax difficult to repeal and pledging to block any attempts to do so, they are increasing the hopelessness of the situation.
Penny Wong attempts to make an argument against its repeal.
Finance Minister Penny Wong said repealing the carbon tax would make little economic sense.
“Once you introduce a price into the economy and business factors that price into its commercial decisions … it’s not sensible economics to simply take that price away,” she told the Ten Network.
Thomas Jefferson observed over two-hundred years ago that government will naturally grow. This attitude is part of the reason why. ‘Oh, well. Business has already gotten used to this burden. It doesn’t make sense to remove it.’ No wonder Labor has added 18000 new regulations and repealed only 86, despite promising ‘one-in-one-out’. Isn’t Penny Wong also in charge of deregulation?
