This is a budget for all Australians. All Australians who work pay tax—men and women. The tax system does not discriminate based on your gender. It doesn't discriminate based on your age. It doesn't discriminate on any of those things that go to who you are. The only thing it discriminates on is how much you earn. If you earn more, you pay more tax. If you earn more, you pay higher rates of tax. If you earn less, you pay lower rates of tax. The truth is that the great majority of the income tax paid in this country is actually paid by those who are on higher incomes.
