  • @ Susan, you are correct this is another GST the NSW Government said it would make the electricity generators put the average increase on the bills.

    I call on all Australians that know this is a scam not to pay this increase!

  • Please remember upto half of this Tax will be returned to us in rebates, the other half goes to the U.N Environment bank. Unfortunatly, the U.N Bank is made up of unelected and unaccountable international people, but hey, it`s an Enviromental bank.

  • Cut the bloody air conditioning & lights to EVERY LIEbor Govt buildings.
    If the people of this nation cannot afford electricity to light and cool our homes, why the hell should taxpayers pay for these obnoxious MPs.
    Maybe when they have to sit in unbearable hot offices they may feel the heat the electorate are feeling quite literally from the absurdity.
    Every State Govt should knock down their climate change departments, just as Newman is doing in QLD.
    They should knock on the head the nonsense emissions targets that are costing us $$Billions, just like VIC has finally had the sense to do.
    Since LIEbor came to power in 2007, 800,000 businesses have closed.
    How many more are going to close with the added costs of the carbon scam tax?
    How many more jobs are going to be axed?
    The unemployment is already 11.9% with over 2 Million people out of work.
    The LIEbor Greens fraudulent carbon dioxide scam tax will be the only catastrophic outcome for our economy & it will NOT reduce emissions one little bit.
    93 days now until this arrogant delusional treacherous govt deliberately increase ALL of our costs of living, on everyone on everything.
    Nothing more than a total con, scam, sham & a hoax propagated by a totally untrustworthy, deceitful, inept, toxic Union Run LIEbor Extremist Greens Independents Traitors Party.
    Shame on them.
    This govt is a disgrace & will be wiped out at the next election for this treachery and good riddance.

  • Two State Governments have already said they want power bills to show the added cost of the Carbon Dioxide Tax. I would like to see all businesses, Shire Council Rate notices, Water Authorities and Shopper dockets, in fact everywhere there is an added cost due to this tax. Then it will be clear to all how much we are paying for this nonsense. GST is shown separately, so why not this tax? Doesn't it also follow that increased costs on these goods and services will also result in more GST? So, expect a double whammy.

  • On July 1st will begin only the first stage of the carbon-tax. Eventually the carbon-tax will be aimed at individuals not just companies. The politicians know it but they wont tell you. Its part of a very big agenda and it seems everyone is on board.

  • You're right Slimy. Both parties are into a race to the bottom. Gillard is just a liberal herself. Politicians are for sale and if phony tony gets the job then he won't change anything. Look for deals done before the election in secret for that.
