POLICIES TO SAVE AUSTRALIA
UNITED AUSTRALIA PARTY POLICIES 2022
The United Australia Party has a plan to save Australia. Australia is facing unprecedented levels of debt, impending interest rate rises and the affects of mandates and lockdowns on the prosperity of businesses around the nation. We are the ONLY party with a solid financial plan to save Australia and put us back on the path to prosperity. It is no longer a question of mandates, freedom and lockdowns; our policies make good sense for every, single Australian. The United Australia Party will save your home, secure your future, create a more prosperous and free future for your children. If you are not happy with how the major parties have handled our country, it’s time to make a change. We are the face of this fight, but the only one who can give yourself and your children a free and prosperous future – is YOU. Vote #1 UAP!
$180 INCREASE TO AGED PENSION
Fortnightly increase $180
Our aged pensioners are doing it really tough and it’s time they receive the respect and support they deserve. The start of our social security reform will see Aged Pension increased by $180 per fortnight.
PAY OFF TRILLION $ DEBT
Pay off the $trillion debt in 20 years
We will pay off the $1.4 trillion dollar debt in just 20 years – without taxing Australians to do it! By adding a 15% levy to iron-ore exports we will pay off the debt in just 20 years. The Asian countries that rely on our iron-ore take over 80% from their supplies from us, that they can’t get anywhere else. This levy will be earmarked to pay off the debt.
CAP HOME LOANS AT 3% FOR 5 YEARS
Cap mortgages at 3% to save your home
With huge debt comes high inflation and we are already seeing the cost of living increase, with rate rises just around the corner. So many Australians are already under mortgage stress – if rates hit 4%, 60% of Australians will be at risk of losing their homes. Rates at 6% will see 80% of Australians potentially lose their home. By capping rates at 3% for 5 years we will buffer your mortgage from inflation while we pay down the $trillion debt. The constitution allows for the Federal Government to set rates, although our government have given that responsibility to the RBA. We will take back that power and cap rates at 3% for 5 years on all home loans – existing and new.
HECS DEBTS ABOLISHED
Forgive all HECS debts & make TAFE & University free
Australian’s with an existing HECS debt will no longer have to pay it – all HECS debts will be wiped! We will make TAFE and University FREE for Australians, so anyone who wants higher education can receive it. HECS debts limits lending capacity making it harder for people to by their first home. Removing HECS will increase their lending ability making first home ownership easier.
BRING HOME $1TRILLION SUPER
Bring home $1trillion super to turbo-charge our economy
Right now Australians have $1trillion dollars of their superannuation invested overseas. We will require this super be returned to Australia and invested in Australian businesses.
20% ZONAL TAX CONCESSION
20% Tax Concession for Regional Communities
People living more than 200km from a capital city will receive a 20% concession on their tax rate. This will stimulate and reinvigorate our regional communities.
MAKE HOME LOANS A TAX DEDUCTION
First $30,000 paid on home loan is tax deductible every year
UAP will make the first $30,000 paid on a home loan tax deductible each year. This will boost the construction industry and increase home ownership and ownership security. By making the first $30,000 paid on a home loan tax deductible, we can restore the great Australian dream of home ownership.
PAY 50% LESS TAX ON 2ND JOB
50% tax reduction on your second job
We will reduce the tax payable on your second job by 50%, meaning you keep more of what you earn and result in 50% more in your pocket each week. This will provide higher incomes and increased earning capacity for every Australian.
$40 BILLION TO HEALTH CARE & HOSPITALS
$40 billion hospital funding
Through our sound financial policies we will be able to provide $40 billion in additional funding for health across Australia. We will make this funding available directly to hospitals, not to the State’s, ensuring the money gets to exactly where it is needed.
$20 BILLION TO EDUCATION
$20 billion to education
We know the education system in Australia needs crucial funding and we will provide it. Our financial management policies will provide $20 billion to support education across Australia, in our first 3 years of government.
SUPPORT OUR VETERANS
Increased Veteran Pensions & Expanded Gold Card benefits
All Australian Defence Force service pensioners will have their payments adjusted to meet the average male Australian earnings. We will expand Gold Card benefits to all peacekeepers. Gold Card Benefits will automatically be delivered to the spouse of all veterans, for their entire lifetime.
SUPPORT AUSTRALIAN MANUFACTURING
Reinvigorate Australian Manufacturing
We have the capability to manufacture much more than we currently do and to be more self reliant. Through our financial policies we will support and encourage Australian Manufacturing. We will process minerals here at home before export.
END ALL MANDATES & RETURN TO WORK
End all mandates and reinstate workers that lost jobs
In a free and democratic nation, medical procedures should never have been mandated. We will end all mandates and reinstate workers who’ve lost their jobs. This extends beyond covid mandates, we will also remove requirements for childhood vaccinations. Should you want to have a vaccine or have your child vaccinated, that is your right, but you should not be penalised for failure to do so, nor should it be required for school or childcare.
END ALL LOCKDOWNS
End all lockdowns
Lockdowns destroy businesses, jobs and the Australian standard of living. Lockdowns cause untold damage to both physical and mental health and cause more harm, than good, to our society. There will never be lockdowns under a UAP government. Open the borders, provide confidence & incentive for businesses to thrive again.
NO VACCINE PASSPORTS
No domestic vaccine passports
Latest research shows vaccinated people can become infected, and infect others. Therefore vaccine passports are based on false assumptions, they are misleading and serve no purpose other than to remove peoples basic human rights. It is not democratic and we will forever remove domestic vaccine passports.
DOCTOR PATIENT RELATIONSHIP
Respect the sanctity of the doctor patient relationship
We believe your medical information is yours alone, and that medical decisions are a discussion for you and your doctor – not for government to intervene in. We respect the privacy of your medical information.
BILL OF RIGHTS & RETURN THE CONSTITUTION
Bill of Rights & the Constitution
We need to return to our Constitution and institute a Bill of Rights so what has happened that last 3 years, can never happen to us again!
Abolish Fringe Benefits Tax. Stop Provisional Tax being paid in advance.
Australian businesses have long struggled with paying provisional tax before they’ve actually generated a profit. Paying provisional tax after earnings, will allow an additional $90 billion to circulate in our economy, providing more jobs and prosperity for Australians. We will also abolish Fringe Benefits Tax which will release $6 billion into the economy. Fringe Benefits is a negative tax, it stifles demand and growth and kills employment.
INCREASE DEFENCE NOW
We need submarines now, not in 40 years.
One hostile submarine between Singapore and Perth and Australia would be cut off from oil supplies, closing down the nation in just 60 days. We believe we need to take immediate steps to acquire nuclear submarines, such as the Los Angeles class subs that we can lease from the USA immediately.
PROMOTE BUYING AUSTRALIAN
Stimulate Australian made industry once again
It is time to return to promoting Australian made industries. All of our policies are designed to put Australia first and restore prosperity to our nation. We will also revise the labelling requirements so consumers can more easily choose Australian made products.
RETURN WEALTH TO THE REGIONS
25% to the regions
We believe that 25% of the wealth generated from regions in Australia must be returned to that region, so the wealth can be reinvested in the area that generated it.
PROTECT AUSTRALIAN VALUES
Protect Australian values for the future
We stand to protect Australian values that have been built in this country since Federation. We believe in the most basic freedoms – freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom from fear and freedom of association. This includes respecting our Constitution and the rule of law, that underpins our democratic society.
PROCESS MINERALS IN AUSTRALIA
Process mineral resources in Australia
We can create thousands of jobs and turbo-charge our exports by processing our mineral resources in Australia, leading to enormous revenue injections that can be spent on better education and health care. Australia fails to maximise it’s revenue by sending unprocessed minerals overseas. Our down-stream processing policy will see more stages of mineral processing happen on Australia soil, stimulating our economy and job creation.
ABOLISH NATIONAL CABINET
National Cabinet is not constitutional
We need to abolish National Cabinet immediately. It is not an elected body and has no right regulating governance over the people.
Hold those responsible, accountable for their actions!
A Federal ICAC needs to be established to determine every person’s role in what has happened to Australian in the past 3 years and each person held accountable for their actions. This includes but is not limited to the politicians, beurocrats, judiciary, TGA, ATAGI, APRHA.
END ENERGY CRISIS
End Australia’s Energy Crisis
Australia has the world’s largest deposits of uranium, and while we export uranium to other nations for them to take advantage of, we ban it’s use for electricity generation in Australia. We need to proactively establish research into new nuclear technology to help solve our energy crisis. Chine, Europe and the USA all benefit from nuclear power. Australia should benefit from our own resources and cheap power so we can compete internationally.
PROTECT FREE SPEECH
From foreign tech giants
Foreign tech giants that operate as platforms (Facebook, Youtube etc) should not be allowed to censor Australians nor the political debate. The UAP will seek to implement laws preventing foreign interference in Australian democracy and free speech.
RESTRICT THE LOBBYISTS
Legislation to stop lobbyists directing political parties
We believe the role of lobbyists in parliament causes corruption and we will legislate to restrict the role of lobbyists directing political parties.
The truth must come out!
We know we have not been told the truth the past 3 years on a number of different issues related to the pandemic and our government’s response. The truth will come out and we will lift the suppression orders so the public can finally know the full extend of what has been done to us.
