I move the Greens amendment circulated in Senator Siewert's name:
At the end of the motion, add:
but the Senate is of the opinion that, rather than punishing the vulnerable and most disadvantaged, revenue should be raised from big miners, bankers and polluters through:
(a) applying a "public insurance" levy on the big four banks that are too big to fail;
(b) removing fossil fuel subsidised fuel for big mining companies;
(c) implementing the original super profits mining tax;
(d) imposing a millionaires tax;
(e) taxing discretionary trusts as corporations.
