My message to the people of Wright is that I am even more committed to the abolition of the carbon tax than I was on the day that Labor brought it in. I have seen for myself the impact on families and small businesses in Wright that are experiencing the impact of massive winter electricity and gas bills, Mr Buchholz said.
With every passing day, the Coalition grows more and more determined to end this tax which is doing great damage to household budgets, local businesses and the wider economy.
While this years winter has passed, the worst is not over. Only last week, the Reserve Bank confirmed the introduction of the carbon tax is affecting prices and said there will be more price impacts on households over the coming six months.
Julia Gillard said there will be no carbon tax under the government I lead and now Julia Gillard is asserting that families arent feeling the pain of her carbon tax.
My message to Julia Gillard is come and visit my electorate of Wright and knock on a few doors and see for yourself the impact of your carbon tax I have, and I know the carbon tax is hurting families, putting pressure on businesses and it is doing nothing for the environment.
Labor thinks it has got away with the carbon tax. If they think they got away with it once, they will try it again if Labor gets re-elected, they will do the same thing again by breaking more promises and introducing more new taxes.
The Coalition has a plan to abolish the carbon tax and it starts on day one of a Coalition Government. On the first day of Parliament after the election, a Coalition Government would introduce legislation to abolish the carbon tax.
We want to take pressure off families, create jobs and grow the economy and that cant happen while Australia is burdened with the worlds biggest carbon tax that is only going up and up.
The field evidence is in the carbon tax is driving up power bills, increasing prices, and hurting families and businesses in Wright and across Australia.
My promise to the people of Wright is that the Coalition wont let up on the carbon tax and with every passing day grows more determined to end this bad tax based on a lie.
