50,000 a year? I can believe that!
Starting at 800,000 I would think it would be more.
Helps keep the unemployment figures down.
"Helps keep the unemployment figures down."
The very reason it is allowed to get this far.
NO country is that sick! And I 'think' the thing exploded under Keating, but I am open to correction.
How many 50-68 year old (Baby Boomer) tradies are there out there with bodies that are starting to pack up after doing 30-40 years of hard, physical labour?
There would also be a fair number of people coming off the DSP as well as they hit 65 and qualify for the Aged Pension instead (or pass away).
I don't really find that number surprising at all: the Boomers were (and are) a large number of people and ensuring their quality of life on the back half was always going to be a challenge.
All the more reason to be very careful about how financial resources are allocated and taxpayer assistance isn't being given to people who don't need it.
Reagan never stopped increases in spending thats why.
Thatcher did it and it worked wonders and helped England recover from the disease.
If small businesses paid the same amount of tax that Google and Apple paid together, then a whole lot more businesses/companies would up stumps and bring their head quarters here. They wouldn't have to set up elaborate schemes with Ireland etc to avoid paying tax in a country that screws all it's industrious sectors of society and hands it to the less so industrious.
Thats the problem with the left. Always on the wrong side of the laffer curve. Cause and effect people.
40%???? its a lot more than that..........................and they shouldnt.
1% of what?
Since my post in 2014 the LNP had increased spending, maintained middle class welfare and done f*ckall about fixing the tax system.

Never praise a pollie it might go to their head
It would not be to hard to fix
Vote Birdman for PM
