How do you want your money spent?

By 17 December 2011 8

Andrew Barr is asking for your thoughts on the 2012-13 ACT Budget.

This process provides an important opportunity for the community, representative and peak bodies and individuals to submit their views on what they believe the Government’s revenue and resource allocation priorities should be in 2012?13 and future years.

These ideas will all feed into Government’s revenue and resource allocation priorities in 2012?13 and future years and I look forward to seeing the ideas that come through.

The 2011-12 ACT Budget has been a focussed and disciplined budget that has allowed for growth in these essential government services. To ensure we continue to improve on delivering these important services in the 2012-13 Budget, we are seeking ideas from the Canberra community.

There’s a consultation paper to sharpen your thinking, comments close on 24 February 2012.

No more money wasted on green schemes or renewable energy. No more climate change grants to green groups. Abolition of the Department of Climate Change and the sacking of its bureaucrats with their files marked “never to be re-employed”. Subsidies given to pensioners to ease the burden of CTP insurance.

No more public “art” until the hospital is properly equipped, and even then, can we at least have some kind of public ballot ? Whoever is choosing it now seems to be pretty clueless. I would like to submit the Belco Owl and the “blue and red mechano set with a rock on top” as evidence.

I have a two pronged approach- put the money into Hospitals and schools. Get those elective surgery wait list times down. Ease accident and emergency departments.Shrink the super sized schools. Now i would like to see that. Provide more special education placements in primary and high school with appropriate staffing to reduce class ratios. Fund Youth drop in centres again.Help the troubled youth out there .

Because the local ACT government has anything to do with the federal Department of Climate Change and because every person working for the Department of Climate Change must necessarily be incompetent by virtue of their working in this area.

Scare Quotes: a massive, towering sculpture of the word “art” surrounded by quotation marks.

Typical self-centred ignorance from John Moulis. “Forget about what can benefit the entire country and its future generations – I want taxpayers to focus on whichever bill I just received in my mailbox!”

I agree with both of these.
