The Courier Mail has an article on the Carbon Tax and at the bottom asks you to vote on various questions.

The results are very one sided.

Brian only a fool or the naive or both would believe anything News Ltd had to say about anything.

I gave reading newspapers up years ago and now get my news elsewhere.....................as do a lot of folks and advertisers are deserting them in droves.

Most newspapers have the morals of an allycat.

Greetings all, self funded retired people WITHOUT a Commonwealth Seniors Health Care Card, will Not receive any compensation. Financial Review today page 11 paragraph 3 (Fleur Anderson).
"Another Carbon Tax Martyr"
This Not to say we need or do not need such a tax. Why are we not "equal" to others receiving "compensation"?
A month or two ago, our Local government raised its taxes, and our state government did the same.They got in before these extra imposts, and now will be forgottern about in the media.I am tired of being the bunny.

Warwick, it isn't a means tested benefit they say, but it is for me too. Our business will suffer but self funded retirees can do too.

Cheers, John

Hey Warrick,

We are too young for a Seniors Health Care Card and self funded retirees.

Thought we were going to miss out however, according to the quote in the Financial Standard, and on the ABC yesterday
"Shorten and Brown also stated that seniors who do not currently pay tax, receive a pension or hold a Seniors Health Card would not miss out with an annual $300 Low Income Supplement payment available through Centrelink"

So all is not lost.

Cheers

Sharon

I think the supermarkets and a few other businesses will see the CT as a great opportunity to raise prices to cover some other business costs and blame the rise the CT.
