New Dental Scheme

Goodbye surplus hello spin. This is yet another Gillard farce. It appears a desperate attempt at vote grabbing. The scheme won't come on line until 2014. Gillard won't be here then and funding will be Abbott's problem. The NDIS and Gonski are set for the same fate. Neither will happen in the next decade and not in the form Gillard proposes anyway. She seems good at announcing schemes for when the Coalition will be in government trying make cuts to pay down horrific debt.


Carbon Floor Price Now $15

This move is really about trying to make it impossible for Abbott to dump the tax. It is all about encouraging Companies to forward buy carbon credits in bundles. If Abbott needs to refund carbon credits it will become too expensive. That's why Abbott is so insistent that he will dump the scheme thereby encouraging Companies not to purchase these corruptible credits. This Gillard move partially negates Abbotts move. Smart.
