GREENS SAY THEY WILL TAX BILLIONAIRES TO FUND LGBT ELECTION POLICY PROMISES

5/1/02 | Star Observer

The Australian Greens party on Sunday unveiled its LGBTQI election policy, which includes $900 million in forward estimates to implement its policies for the community. The plan will be funded by the party’s proposed billionaires tax and corporate super-profit tax. Out Senator Janet Rice told Star Observer that between Prime Minister Scott Morrison using LGBTQI people as “political football” and Labor doing a “disappearing act” on LGBTQI issues, the Greens would have the community’s back. “The Greens are running strong election campaigns across the country, speaking to voters about the issues that matter to them,” Senator Rice said ahead of the event at the Victorian Pride Centre in Melbourne to release the Greens LGBTQI election policy. “If we’re successful in kicking the Liberals out and being in balance of power with a future Labor government, we will have enough votes to ensure we can push Labor further and farther on enacting progressive legislation, including on LGBTIQA+ issues,” the Senator said.
