As Australia’s working class continues to struggle with comical rent spikes and an impenetrable housing market, pressure is now on the new Labor government to drop the phased rollout of tax cuts for rich who have been left behind by Scotty From Marketing.
The pressure is now on the Albanian government to drop coalition tax policies aimed at protecting the wealth of the top 1% – or will they just go after this very real attack on the working class and return to their base by being photographed at the Mardi Gras and Invasion Day rallies.
It comes just a week after the UK government scrapped plans to introduce a new Boris-era tax system aimed at giving $74 billion in tax cuts to the wealthy.
It is not yet known whether the Australian Labor Party, a political institution founded by the Australian working class to fight against this type of wealth hoarding, will follow suit. Or if they will continue to play the role of a slightly less obnoxious Liberal Party.
In a country where people who earn between 18 and 45,000 a year are taxed at 20%, the Australian media has asked very few questions about why people who earn almost a quarter of a million a year benefit from first of tax cuts.
Maybe it’s because our reporters and the vast majority of federal politicians all used to play hackey sack on the same lawns at the same Sandstone universities, and both have the same nest egg to protect, with a detachment equally evident from the fact that very few pussies outside of their diners in the Midwest find it easy to get by.
In 2018 and 2019, the Australian Parliament passed the then-Scott Morrison government’s tax package, with many of the tax cuts in that package designed to redistribute Australian wealth at the top – to mimic a more balanced system, like the ‘America.
Speaking to The Betoota Advocate today, Treasurer Jim Chalmers said it would be pretty drastic to go easy on fighters and tax billionaires like Clive and Gina.
“I mean, we didn’t promise viva la revolution in the elections, did we? said Chalmers, as Prime Minister Albanese bent down to straighten his top hat.
“We promised to keep pushing this thing forward”
“Listen… We’re thinking about it. Maybe we could move a few brackets… I don’t know. Don’t quote me on anything”
“Be satisfied with the 6,000 social housing units that we are building on the outskirts of major cities. We have not forgotten our roots”
