“We will oppose it in Opposition and we will rescind it in government. It’s a bad tax, it will kill the goose that’s laid the golden egg for Australia and if you want to stop the tax you’ve got to change the government.”
Doorstop – 10 June 2010

And he says ‘NO’ to the benefits of the mining boom being shared with Australians

“Obviously, under the Coalition, spending specifically associated with the carbon tax and the mining tax won’t go ahead ...”
Address to the Committee for Economic Development of Australia – 29 August 2011

Tony Abbott has said ‘NO’ to compulsory superannuation

“Compulsory superannuation is possibly the greatest confidence trick of the last decade.”
Eureka Street – April 1995

And he’s said ‘NO’ to 12% super for Australian workers
STEVE PRICE: ... if you were to win the election then employers would not be forced to increase the superannuation contribution from 9 to 12? TONY ABBOTT: I don’t support this change. That’s what I’m saying, Steve. PRICE: So it’ll stay at 9 under you? ABBOTT: Well, yes, that’s right.

“I mean, I have dedicated my political life, whatever’s left of it, to stopping this carbon tax. If it comes in, to taking it off, and resisting till the death this thing coming in.”
Doorstop – 11 July 2011

But he’s also said

“If you want to put a price on carbon, why not just do it with a simple tax?”

“What we are seeing going through the parliament though, Paul is legislation to produce additional bureaucracies, unnecessary additional bureaucracies and that’s why we’ve opposed those moves.”
Sky News – 27 March 2011

And he says ‘NO’ to GP superclinics

“The so-called GP super clinics programme is a building programme, it’s not a health services programme, and that’s why the Coalition has always been opposed to it.”

Tony Abbott says ‘NO’ to Medicare Locals
“I think it’s fair to say that no one understands what these Medicare Locals are supposed to be and there are very grave concerns in the local health community that these Medicare Locals could turn out to be an attack on fee for service, could turn out to be an attack on the medical profession, further undermining the professionalism and the autonomy of doctors and that’s the last thing we should see.” Doorstop - 17 February 2011

And ‘NO’ to the GP After-Hours Hotline

Cuts in the Liberals’ Mental Health election policy - Direct Action Plan for Better Mental Health – July 2010 (GP After-Hours Hotline is funded under Medicare Locals)

NO NO NO NO NO NO

to the stimulus funding that saved 200,000 jobs
“The Prime Minister claims that the stimulus spending was necessary to save jobs, but at about $250,000 each, the 200,000 jobs allegedly saved by the $53 billion in stimulus payments look to have been dearly bought.”

NEIL MITCHELL: Oh good, thank you, well that was on the flood levy. Now, do you think you can stop it? TONY ABBOTT: We’ll do our best because I think Queenslanders and Victorians in particular have suffered enough without having to suffer yet another new tax from a government which has got a lot of new taxes planned for us. So we’ll do our best.
3AW - 27 January 2011

And he says ‘NO’ in principle to foreign aid

“So far, no country has escaped from third world status on the basis of foreign aid. Every country which has moved out of comparative poverty (such as Korea, Taiwan and Singapore) and every region which has become a particular country’s economic locomotive (such as Mumbai or Shanghai) has done so on the basis of trade not aid. This stands to reason because buying from someone makes him a partner while giving to someone is more likely to make him a supplicant than a friend.”
Op-ed - 19 July 2006

NO NO NO NO NO NO

NO Tony Abbott says ‘NO’ to Trade Training Centres
“The Trade Training Centres that the Government has in mind are essentially a shed out the back of the school with a lathe in it. There are no dedicated teachers. There is no dedicated ongoing funding.”

Tony Abbott says ‘NO’ to banning banks’ unfair exit fees
“Now, I don’t particularly like exit fees but we’ve got to understand that the banks are going to need to recoup their costs and the problem with a ban, particularly with an across the board ban is that it could end up making things even harder for struggling first home buyers.”
Doorstop - 14 June 2011

And he said ‘NO’ to the stimulus payments to Australian families that helped keep our economy strong during the GFC

“There were further cheques, the $900 cheques, that went out as part of the second stimulus which we opposed and I have to say we were right to oppose it.”

Tony Abbott says ‘NO’ to proper public scrutiny of election costings
QUESTION: Will you submit the election policies to the Parliamentary Budget Office? TONY ABBOTT: If the Parliamentary Budget Office is the kind of institution that it should be; that treats proposals from members of parliament in confidence and provides frank and fearless confidential advice, yes, but that’s not the Parliamentary Budget Office that we look like getting from this Government.
