Who is Senator Bob Day & What’s happening in the Senate?


Who is Senator Bob Day ?
Senator Day is a South Australian home builder who founded Homestead Homes and similar home building companies all over Australia. In the 2013 Federal Election, Senator Day was elected to represent South Australia in the Senate as a candidate for the Family First Party on a platform of ‘Every family, a job and a house’. This massive task promotes independence and self-reliance, reduces government intervention, fosters smaller government, lower taxes and more money in the pockets of families.

What’s happening in the Senate?

There’s a lot of debate about what’s happening in Federal politics, and a welcome return to a focus on the parties and independents represented in the Senate. Senator Bob Day took office on 1 July 2014 and has already voted in support of repeal of the carbon tax and mining tax, whilst fighting to retain vital low income and family support measures.

GST Increase? No way says Senator Da
y
Senator Bob Day has declared his strong opposition to a 50% increase in the GST.
“Families, households, individuals already pay enough tax for the services of government, some $385 billion a year – yet the government spends $420 billion a year, they have to cut their cloth like everyone else.”
Last November Senator Day showed the major parties how to reduce duplication, blame-shifting and unnecessary spending – which is the pathway to more money for vital health services, as well as the way to Budget surplus.

Survey Introduction and Speech on Housing Affordability
Senator Day explains why Sydney and Melbourne have been confirmed as two of the least affordable cities in the world for home buyers, in a recently published survey introduction and Senate speech.

The true culprit is artificial land supply by State Governments, which denies the wealth & security of home ownership to the current generation.

Wind power an expensive con
Damning new evidence has exposed the exaggerations of the wind industry, which has delivered five times less electricity than its claimed potential and added $50 per year to bills.
According to Senator Bob Day, “wind turbine owners might be making a fortune but wind power is costing SA families a fortune. It is a con.” Read the full story here.
The Senate Committee into Wind Turbines (of which Senator Day was Deputy Chair) reports are available to read: Interim and Final.
