The Gillard Labor Government, supposedly the champion of the unions and the working classes is about to strike a massive blow on the standard of living enjoyed by ordinary Australians. They are going to impose a carbon tax in July 2012
You reckon that your power bills have gone up a lot in the past couple of years, well that's just the start. Don't forget that nearly everything buy has used electricity in its manufacturing process. Every shop uses electricity, nearly everything uses electricity. Now when every factory, shop and school etc has big increases in their costs they have to pass it on.
So not only will your own use of power cost more, nearly everything you buy will cost more. For What? To please a small group of self indulgent people who wish to lower the standard of your living. This carbon tax will not make a scrap of difference to Australia's emissions. It is possible that some marginal manufacturing operations could close here and move offshore, less jobs but the greens don't care.
All this is to please inner city, childless, wealthy people who vote green because they think it means they care. All it means is that they are too stupid to realise the end result of their vote. They don't care if pensioners stop using their airconditioning, they don't care if single parents have their electricity disconnected, all they care about is their feelings.
Anyone who votes green and has an average or more IQ is at the bottom of things is either (a) Really Dumb (b) Just doesn't care about others or (c) Is a little Hitler who wants to impose their idea of how one should live on other people.
YOU CAN'T HAVE A TAX ON CARBON AND NOT HAVE POWER PRICES INCREASE!! IT JUST CANNOT HAPPEN!!!
