Labor has sold out regional Australia to the Greens and Independents, who demanded a carbon tax as a condition of support for Julia Gillard's minority government.
The carbon tax will send Australian jobs offshore to countries without a carbon tax, and will devastate our mining and agricultural industries. Australian families will pay more for many everyday necessities, putting even more pressure on the family budget.
The worst part is that the carbon tax will not help stop climate change.
You can help stop the carbon tax by:
- Writing a letter to your local newspaper
- Calling your local radio station
- Volunteering to help The Nationals
- Joining The Nationals
The best way to stop the carbon tax is to vote for The Nationals at the next federal election.
