As the Australian working class continue to battle in the face of comical rent spikes and in impenetrable property market, the pressure is now on the new Labor government to scrap the staged roll-out of tax cuts for the rich that were left behind by Scotty From Marketing.
The pressure is now on for the Albanese government to scrap leftover coalition tax policies aimed at protecting the wealth of the richest 1% – or will they just white knuckle it through this very real attack on the working class and win back their base by getting photographed at Mardi Gras and Invasion Day rallies.
This comes just a week after the UK government abandoned it’s plan to proceed with a new Boris-era taxation system aimed at giving $74 billion worth of tax cuts to the rich.
It is not yet known if The Australian Labor Party, a political institution founded by the Australian working class to combat this kind of trickle-down wealth hoarding, will follow suit. Or if they will continue playing the role of a slightly less obnoxious Liberal Party.
In a country where people who earn 18-45k per year are taxed 20% – the Australian media has been asking very few questions about why people who earn close to a quarter million per year are given tax cuts first.
Perhaps this is because our journalists and the vast majority of Federal politicians all used to play hackey sack on the same lawns of the same Sandstone universities, and both have the same nest eggs to protect, with an equally obvious detachment from the fact that very few cunts outside of their inner-west dinner parties are finding it easy to get by.
In 2018 and 2019, the Australian Parliament passed the then-Scott Morrison government’s income tax package, with numerous tax cuts in that package designed to redistribute Australian wealth to the very top – to emulate a more balanced system, like America.
Speaking to The Betoota Advocate today, Treasurer Jim Chalmers said it would be pretty radical to go easy on the battlers and tax the billionaires like Clive and Gina.
“I mean, we didn’t promise viva la revolution at the election did we?” said Chalmers, as Prime Minister Albanese leant over to straighten up his top hat.
“We promised to just keep this thing chugging along”
“Look… We are thinking about it. Maybe we could move some brackets around… I dunno. Dont quote me on anything”
“Just be happy with the 6000 social housing flats we are building in the outskirts of the major cities. We haven’t forgotten our roots”
