Ed Husic, Labor Chifley MP
A re-elected Rudd Government will remove the carbon tax, saving families an average of $380 each year.
This will ease cost of living pressures for families.
The Direct Action Plan outlined by the Coalition has taxpayers paying polluters, which isn't fair.
Isabelle White, Liberal candidate
Our first priority is to deliver a strong and prosperous economy with more jobs, lower taxes and real help for families and small businesses so that the people of Chifley and the wider community can get ahead.
People in Chifley are struggling with the cost of living due to the carbon tax, which is why I'm proud that the first thing a Coalition Government will do is scrap the carbon tax.
This will not only help families struggling to find the extra money for electricity bills but also small businesses."
Ben Hammond, Greens candidate
Despite having one of the strongest economies in the world our housing system is failing many of us.
The Greens believe that a quality social housing system, where governments and not-for-profit organisations rent affordable housing to low income households, remains vital to a fully functioning housing market.
That is why we would build 122,000 social dwellings over the next 10 years.
We would also move to increase the Newstart and Youth Allowances by $50 a week at a minimum, as well as increasing the minimum wage.
