Real tax reform: a love letter to Ken Henry

We should look at taxation through the eyes of the working class. Tax labour lightly and capital heavily.

By their Pratts shall ye know them

Rudd vilifies people smugglers as code for attacking refugees, yet praises rich cartel operators? Sickening, but typical of what Labor is – the second eleven of capital.

The problem may be that the Australian Tax Office has too little power, not too much.
