Carbon tax to fund company tax cuts

Fin Rev seems to think this nonsense is a good idea:

Companies pay like 17% company tax in real life. That doesnt need cutting to “be competitive internationally!”

It means small business and households paying a tax that flows out of the country to international businesses and their shareholders. Sure, we would act to reduce the carbon tax paid but we will be forever worse off than we are now with wages stagnant, wage theft rampant, Libs wanting to cut pensions and NewStart! Idiocy!
Abbott & Co are going to cause the mother and father of all recessions—be prepared!
