Should we increase the Newstart allowance? Tim Webster discusses further the issue raised this week on those struggling to survive on $35 a day, and our attention now drawn to those disadvantaged in our suburbs.
Johannes, maybe we should impose a junk food tax so as to encourage people to eat more natural foods. Our farmers might appreciate the extra business. I'd be interested to hear what others think. Do you have an issue with people being made accountable for the bum decisions they have taken?James W Tuesday 8 January, 2013 - 6:46 AM
James W, I suppose you want user pays for ALL medical. I bet you`d baulk at a fat tax, an AIDs tax, dog tax or junk food tax, each of which cost our hospitals and govt. dearly.Johannes Monday 7 January, 2013 - 6:05 PM
Mean spirited types would hardly donate to others, would they now, Juliarrr?James W Monday 7 January, 2013 - 10:47 AM
James W you are a typical mean spirited Labor hypocrite. Labor are donating our taxes to countries who clearly hate Australia. Labor has thrown-away, countless $Billions of dollars. Labor are wastefully making huge donations which should naturally be used for our own suffering needy people here. Cigs should be banned from sale, because they are poisonous and are poisoning people full stop. Bottom line-desperate hypocrites, Labor are always looking for more ways to tax people, even our bloody damned poor...JULIARRR Sunday 6 January, 2013 - 9:23 PM
The REAL cost of smoking should be factored into every pack of cancer sticks so that the user pays. This levy can change as fast as fuel prices if necessary to cover costs. Govt should be prevented from vacuuming this money from its intended destination of Heath care. Annual permits to smoke should be sold and smokers should show their permits to purchase the drug. This would help shut down new smokers joining the roundabout.Danny Dix Sunday 6 January, 2013 - 10:32 AM
While they`re at it, a bigger tax on gambling, alcohol, pet food and lotteries would help tax revenue too.
More dog bite victims than smoking illnesses in our hospitals mean the govt. could be on a winner here.Johannes Friday 4 January, 2013 - 10:43 PM
