Follow the money trail
This follows nicely from an earlier post…http://austeaparty.com.au/web/?p=1694. where the question of exporting Australia’s tax receipts overseas was seriously questioned. Let alone the amount and the huge rates of continual increase! Yet there is a continual cry for more and more taxes.When they tax us… where do thee dollars really go???
THE TOP 8 RECIPIENTS OF THE AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT’S AID DOLLARS IN 2010-2011
Indonesia $458.7 million
Papua New Guinea $457.2 million
Solomon Islands $225.7 million
Afghanistan $123.1 million
Vietnam $119.8 million
Philippines $118.1 million
East Timor $102.7 million
Cambodia $64.2 million
TOTAL = $ 1,669 million – to be given away in 52 weeks !!!!
..but wait, there’s more !!!!!
. Australia provides approximately 150,000 tonnes of food aid every year-about $65 million-to Bangladesh,
Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Sudan and Chad.
In 2010 – 2011 the Australian Government plans to spend almost $4.4 billion
on development assistance to under developed countries.
SO… Ask your local Member how come 2011 Queensland flood victims get “$17million so far” ????
Also ask why our schools are underfunded , hospitals underfunded , Roads are falling apart , why is our national debt so high , why why why are we sending our tax dollars overseas when we need them here , Enough is Enough .
This is why they are raising taxes, to help every country but Australia.
and then there is the UN…. but that is another story!
till next time…
