An extra $4 a slab?! Mother (*)(*)(*)(*)ers!! I'm not necessarily opposed to new taxes, but this seems rather pointless and counter productive. I highly doubt it will make it into law.
On a side note, I'm sick of politicians going on about "working families." Seriously, I dont give a (*)(*)(*)(*) about working families. Yeah, yeah, they've got kids and blah blah, but lets face it, pollies dont care at all about these people - its just a phrase trying to draw out some primitive appeal to traditional values. It really irritates me.
I'm willing to change my position at any time on any issue. I have done so in the past. All you need is a logical, provable case, and I'm all in. The question is, have you got what it takes?
Oh, and just so you're not confused, I'm an apatheist libertarian.
