Government Has No Mandate To Legislate Tax Cuts
Jun 18th, 2019 at 2:08pm
 
Treasurer rejects Labor's tax cut demands

Jun 18, 2019
Nine News

Josh Frydenberg insists low and middle-income earners will be the ultimate winners from the federal government's promised tax cuts.
This comes as the treasurer refuses to tell Labor exactly how much of the coalition's $158 billion package will benefit people earning more than $180,000.
"The lower and middle income earners are the winners," Mr Frydenberg told ABC TV from Washington on Tuesday.
"The numbers are clearly set out in the budget."
The budget didn't contain the analysis by income group that Labor is seeking.
But Mr Frydenberg says the coalition is distributing exactly the kind of details Labor did when it last ran the country.
"What we've done is entirely consistent with the Labor Party's approach when they were in government and made some tax changes," he told ABC Radio National.


The coalition needs Labor or at least four crossbenchers to support the full three-stage tax plan to get it through the Senate when parliament resumes next month.
Labor supports the first stage of the plan, which will mean extra cash for low and middle income-earners.
But it believes the later stage, aimed at flattening the tax rates by mid-2024, shouldn't be legislated years in advance and may be skewed toward the wealthy.
The coalition has ruled out splitting up the plan, arguing the final stage brings much-needed structural reform.
Mr Frydenberg says it's time for Labor to accept the mandate Australians handed the government to roll out the tax plan when it re-elected the coalition on May 18.
"The Australian people voted for lower taxes, not Labor's higher taxes and redistribution agenda," he said.
Senior Labor frontbencher Tanya Plibersek says the government does not have a mandate to legislate tax cuts five years in advance while the economy faces pressures from all directions.
"You get a mandate for a term, you don't get a mandate for eternity because you win one election," she told ABC Radio National.
"They're asking us to pass a package where they won't give us details about the distributional analysis of who benefits from the later stages of this tax package.
"And they're asking us to make commitments now for tax cuts that come in in not just one election's time but two elections time."
One Nation leader Pauline Hanson, who directs two Senate votes, has said she won't back the plan because major infrastructure spending would be a better way to stimulate the economy.
Centre Alliance, which also has two votes, remains on the fence, amid concerns the extra cash for workers could be lost to rising power costs.
The minor party's senator Rex Patrick met Finance Minister Mathias Cormann to discuss the tax package on Monday.
Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry boss James Pearson is among those urging the parliament to get the cuts across the line.
A new survey has also found strength among manufacturing firms declined a little in the three months to June.
"It all points to the need to strengthen the economy and improve business conditions for the manufacturing sector and business generally," Mr Pearson said.
"It has become even more important the new parliament pass the government's tax package in its first sitting in July to stimulate consumer spending.

Any excuse

Liberal don't want the tax cuts, it would hurt the bottom line

Labour don't want the tax cuts, they want to punish us for not voting them in.

Independents don't want the tax cuts, because they are all pricks.

So

We won't get any tax cuts,.....simple

Nice to hear it but nobody is claiming that Labor have a mandate. That means that there is no point to making the claim ?

A regressive tax and wealth redistribution system is "much-needed"? Really?

A typical household on $200,000 a year receives more in government handouts per year than a household reliant on income support. Will all this wealthfare largesse be cut to pay for these tax cuts?

Some of the wealthfare that would need to be cut to pay for it:
* Private health insurance rebate
* Share imputation
* Negative gearing
* Tax-free retirement income

Australia CANNOT afford to carry the rich anymore!

its a noble act for a government to give out tax cuts.
canberra is addicted to our money like fat steve is addicted to cheeseburgers and coca cola

when steve makes the noble statement that he will get by with less, that he will restrain his greedy appetite, i think he deserves a pat on the back.

for scott to say that his government will be less glutinous then previous governments deserves our respect and our applause.

way to go scott.

you are an inspiration to all those fat carb bloated entitled lazy chodes.

The tax cuts are for our wonderful businesses .
Steve is on welfare or minimum wage and he will be going on a diet along with Canberra.

This should make him hungry and motivated ,rather the a well fed neutered Tom cat sitting on the sofa.
Scott is put the evolutionary blowtorch on Steve.
Steve will have to strive , persevere, go thru challenges, climb the mountain, push thru barriers, punch thru the wall.
Scott is providing extra motivation for Steve to " be all that he can be"
A noble act of tough love
