Australia Triumphantly Shakes Off Carbon Tax
There is still good news to be had, even in the Age of Hope & Change. You just won’t find it in the USA. From Down Under:
It has cost the economy $15 billion and ripped $78 million a week from the pockets of Australians families since it was unleashed on the Australian economy. Now, after 747 days, it is finally over.
The carbon tax officially died last night when the Governor-General Peter Cosgrove gave royal assent to the Abbott government’s repeal bills, erasing more than 1000 pages of legislation introduced by then-prime minister Julia Gillard in July 2012.
“Today the tax that you voted to get rid of is finally gone,” Prime Minister Tony Abbott declared, having delivered on his 2011 “blood pledge” to abolish it.
Where’s our Tony Abbott? If Australia can get rid of its crippling carbon tax, malignant legislation that existed only to further empower statists, we can do the same with ObamaCare.
Crucially, Abbott has also blocked the deluge of illegal immigration that Australian moonbats were counting on to transform the electorate into a permanent left-wing constituency, which would effectively enslave the English-speaking European population that built Australia.
If Labor regains power, it will inflict an “emissions trading scheme” and open the coasts back up to the welfare colonists who were arriving on Australia’s shores in anything that would float. But if not, there is hope.
There might be hope for the USA too, after Obama is safely out of power, provided we can put a prompt halt to his displacement of the population with illegal immigrants.
