Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2012 Week 1 Hansard (14 February) . . Page.. 118..


It is Canberra families who are going to pay more. They are going to continue to pay more for their rates. They are going to continue to pay more in other taxes and charges to the ACT government. They have already gone through the roof over the last decade. It is this kind of waste that means that the pensioners and the young families who are making their way in the world in the suburbs of Canberra are going to be saddled with personal debt to pay off this government's debt and this government's wasteful spending. We think that is disgraceful and we think that is more than worthy of censure. I commend the motion to the Assembly.
