We need to secure Australia’s revenue base to fund the services we need. Also, a lot of government revenue isn’t being spent wisely. If we axe subsidies to polluters and ask wealthy miners and banks to pay their fair share, we can start to fund a clean economy and a caring society.
The Greens will find savings and boost revenue to raise the funds needed for our plans. We will stop the billions of dollars in unfair subsidies for big miners to buy cheaper petrol. We will reform negative gearing that disproportionately benefits the wealthiest 10% of Australians while pushing housing prices up and remove superannuation tax concessions for the most wealthy.
All financial policies in this platform are fully funded and have been fully costed by the Parliamentary Budget Office.
