As these new crisis bailouts for fossil fuels show, it’s those who are least deserving who get the most government protection
Every year, the Government hands out around $6 billion dollars in fuel tax subsidies – and the coal mining industry is one of the largest recipients. It’s all in a report released this week by the Australian Conservation Foundation, which would make for some handy reading for our Treasurer who’s weighing up different options to save the Government money.
Think Mr Hockey should raise revenue by stopping handouts to billion-dollar mining corporations instead of creating $100k university degrees?
