I’m not so excited about the Bill before the House aiming to let couples split their incomes and cut tax. I’d be far more excited if people began recognising that when government takes around 45% of every year’s production, that effectively means that one partner in every couple is going out to work just to keep the government afloat.
That’s utterly iniquitous.
If you want to help families, Mr Dunne-Nothing, then help stop this government spending so damn much. That will do much more for non-mooching families than anything your damn Families Commission has or will ever do.
