GREEDY BUSINESS WANTS A HANDOUT NOT TAX
Big business isn't happy with the move to exempt motorists.
Australia Chamber of Commerce and Industry chief executive Peter Anderson said the move would simply shift the price burden of a carbon tax to other areas of the economy.
"If you start exempting particular products or particular industries or particular groups, you simply transfer the cost of that tax in a way that becomes more burdensome for those who are not exempted," he told Sky News.
"That is a danger, why can't the workers pay for it, as usual"
"It is not going to change the climate, it is not going to do anything to the temperature of the globe," Senator Joyce told Channel Ten.
He then had to admit that neither would the coalition's direct action policy.
So now we have business wanting a handout and Barnaby wanting to give them just that, out of taxpayers pockets even though he thinks is will not make any difference.
The government is at least making the polluters pay and not the taxpayers, for mine I know which I prefer.
