THe Last Sentry at the Gate 1

The first $10,000 paid on a home loan each year should be tax deductible. Australians need the dream of home ownership. It will make our houses affordable again, increase employment and give our young people a goal to strive for. This will boost the construction industry, increase our home ownership and boost building activity to satisfy demand, which in turn will increase revenue for the government. By growing demand and government revenue we can reduce personal income tax by 15% for all Australians. This will mean the average Australian taxpayer will have $2500 extra in their pocket every year; an extra $50 a week. This increase in demand and activity will boost jobs, investment and small business profits. It will stimulate the economy and create more jobs. As that extra $2500 circulates in our economy, even if it’s just ten times, I estimate the government will get the same amount of revenue as they did from the tax cuts. But money will do what it does best by circulating, creating jobs, looking to the future and giving our citizens hope. We know our citizens can spend money better than government, creating more demand, jobs and government revenue. Every time it’s spent the government gets 10% GST. For too long Australians have lacked incentive and confidence and felt they cannot help themselves. We want to change that. We can ignite Australia if we work together. Australians need incentive. Without incentive there’s no growth in our economy. Our economy continues to decline, the revenue shrinks and the government wants to close our schools, privatise our hospitals and turn people away. The lack of incentive for workers is a problem we face in Australia today. Industry must provide incentives for all who serve it. Our pensioners are paid one of the lowest pensions in the OECD and their living standard is close to the poverty line.

The lack of incentive for workers is a problem we face in Australia today. Industry must provide incentives for all who serve it. Australian workers don’t have a second job because of the high rate of taxation. We need to give them an incentive. Our pensioners are paid one of the lowest pensions in the OECD and their living standard is close to the poverty line. We can change all that if we stimulate our economy. We can increase the age pension by 20% or $150 per fortnight. This step will in itself stimulate demand and create jobs. President Obama did it in the United States. Europe is stimulating its economy now. We cannot tolerate Australians dying in the corridors of our hospitals. The cost of healthcare in the United States is 17% of GDP, yet 60 million Americans are not covered. The Australian Government spends around 9% . We cannot desert the sick and the dying. Medical staff are overworked and hospitals inadequate. Our medical staff are at breaking point. Australia needs an additional $80 billion in funding for health in the next three years. In the days of Prime Minister Menzies our debts were around 40% of GDP, which would still be only 60% of OECD average. We must do whatever needs to be done to fix healthcare once and for all. The Australian Government is the main practitioner of bankruptcy and company liquidations across Australia. As companies close, employees lose their jobs, the government loses group tax and people transfer from gainful employment to Centrelink.
