  2. good to see a degree of bipatisan to our budget problem. the difference is that labor plans to use new taxes to help pay for its new spending inititiaves while allowing the budget deficit to rise further. no party seems prepared to talk about the millions of taxpayers who only pay gst – ie net tax payments less rebates is less than zero!
