Carbon Tax passed in lower house
The government’s carbon tax package was passed 74 votes to 72, with applause from the government benches as legislation was passed with the support of independents Tony Windsor and Rob Oakeshott, and Greens MP Adam Bandt. Cost of living to rise with no benefit for the environment – sounds like an ALP plan. Now watch the pressure ramp up on the Senate. UPDATE: Latest NEWSPOLL has 60% of respondents against the Tax and that’s not going to go down when they start getting increased bills in the knowledge that their suffering won’t help the environment one little bit.
