Fear and Greed

Member for Morphett, Dr Duncan McFetridge, has struck a deal with Premier Jay Weatherill that, if the $ 90 million bank tax is passed, then $100 million worth of remissions on the Emergency Services Levy will be put back in place.  This will benefit more than 500,000 households, 40,000 farms and 30,000 businesses.

It will be a $100 million injection into the economy to help struggling families, farmers and businesses cope with the highest electricity prices in the world.  It will still allow the $200 million jobs package to go ahead to help reduce the highest unemployment in the nation.

 

Dr McFetridge is calling on Members of the Legislative Council to think of the families, farmers and business and not trash over 100 years of tradition by blocking the State Budget; give tax relief to the people who need it – the taxpayers of South Australia.

“The greatest motivators in life are fear and greed.  The banks are spending millions on an advertising campaign to block the bank tax – they need to say what motivates them” said Dr McFetridge.
