Should we get paid to Vote???
Closed

I agree with Gilbert who posed the question "Should we be paid to vote?" and the way I see it, the pollies are being paid by people who want lucrative Government contracts that tax payers have to pay for, look at Liberal lobbyists like Michael Woolridge who was health minister and got on the Aspen company board after politics, it was then awarded a billion dollar contract that earned the company 25%. so yeah, if pollies get bribed by business then we should get paid say $10,000 each for our vote, then set up a trust fund for our kids and grand kids who will be paying for the governments 5 billion Dollars for cancelling the subs contract.

Thank you one and all for your comments, it was a bit of tongue in cheek and I am well aware of what happens in countries that do pay voters. I do worry that my grandchildren will be paying off debts incurred, and it seems that each week there is new reports of money being splashed out.. If we went the US way of not being compulsory then would have Trump over here

You may as well take compulsory voting off the table instead off paying people to vote then see what we end up with. I think half the country wouldn't bother because off what politics has become over the years.

No, I do not believe we should be paid ml. It is a right that has been given to us. I feel that if we were paid that many would do this and still not vote properly. They would do it just for the pay.

Also we don't have how much it will cost yet to cancel.
You are just going on a report written by Penny Wong. None of it confirmed.
Dont believe anything during Election time until it is confirmed.
Its all here say on all sides to get your vote.
Not all Pollies are corrupt. You need to research and not listen to the rhetoric of just the Party you follow as to them everyone's corrupt but themselves if it gets your vote..
