Thanks to those of you who commented on yesterday’s post but before I go any further I have a correction to make about the sum of money I mentioned yesterday. Sorry for the typo! The correct amounts to be given out are:
$900.00 for those who earned up to $80,000
$600.00 for those who earned $80,001 – $90,000
$250.00 for those who earned $90,001 – $100,000
These cheques are going to be sent out to anyone who submitted a tax return for the last financial year including;
Criminals currently serving custodial sentences, approximately 28,000 people living overseas and believe it or not deceased individuals (their estates). Can someone please tell me how these recipients are going to stimulate OUR economy with their cash bonuses?
It is obvious that very little thought has gone into this initiative and is a knee jerk reaction. Seems to me that everything the Rudd Government does is ill conceived and reckless. What we need at this time is sound economic management and leadership and not middle class welfare handouts!!!
It’s a lovely day here and I am going to make the most of it as the warm days are numbered 🙂
