As we were talking about yesterday, there is a clear choice at the next election: if you want to pay higher taxes, vote for Mr Shorten, the Leader of the Opposition, but if you want lower taxes, if you want a government that will back you every step of the way, if you want more money in your back pocket, then vote for the Liberal-National government, because, at the end of the day, the only plan that the Labor Party have for the Australian people is tax, tax and more tax. And not only that—when I talk to small and family businesses about their electricity bills, they tell me they are horrified at the prospect of a Shorten Labor government, because they know the only party that will put downward pressure on their electricity bill is the Liberal-National side. They are petrified of seeing increased electricity bills and increased taxes, because all that means is that they close their business. A business that has to close employs no-one.
