Greens Senator Sarah Hanson-Young has claimed on twitter that an analysis of the Coalition government’s tax cuts shows for every dollar that goes to women, $2 will go to men. She concluded, “It’s a sexist tax package”.
South Australian lead candidate for the Conservatives in the senate Rikki Lambert says Senator Sarah Hanson-Young’s assertion is absolute rubbish.
Federal Treasurer Scott Morrison said, “The tax system doesn’t discriminate by gender. It’s an absolutely ridiculous proposition”.
“It looks at someone’s income, not their gender. That’s what it does, and the more women that we have get higher paid jobs, then the more they will benefit from that arrangement, “ he said.
“You know, you don’t get pink forms and blue forms to fill out your tax return. That’s not how it works. They’re one colour, they assess one thing: what you earn, and you pay tax on what you earn”.
Rikki Lambert agrees with the Treasurer.
