Stop sending GST welfare to Canberra, Western Australia can’t afford it.
Since 2000, Western Australia has exported $1 trillion dollars worth of mineral exports.*
If you live to be 80 years of age, you would need to save $34 million each day of your life to reach $1 trillion.
Not only has Western Australia exported all those minerals, but it has exported all that money too!
What’s left is:
$36 billion dollars of debt
$3.4 billion budget deficit
Every Western Australian household now has $36,ooo of State debt PLUS any other debt on their home, credit card, and personal loans.
WA must stop sending our GST to Canberra. It has become GST welfare for other states while WA goes broke!
This election vote 1 to keep the GST in WA. Vote 1 Julie Matheson for Western Australia.
