Votes: This is an ordinary bill. It requires more yes votes than no votes. This bill will not pass any sooner than the deadline.

We need to see what kind of revenue the Luxury and Corporation Tax will bring us. I propose a 1% tax in both these areas, to see how much we would need to put our budget into the positives.

MessageTaxation should be kept to an absolute minimum. The 10% flat income tax is more than enough to cover essentials.

MessageWe recognize the necessity of a balanced budget and in doing so support this bill. With the proposed budget cuts failing to be passed, we see a need for an increase in taxes.

MessageHow much will the proposed taxes raise in added revenue? And, how much will the proposed taxes make a negative impact?

MessageIn response to the COM's question. We do not know how much this 1% tax will add in revenue, that's why we are proposing a 1% tax increase instead of a different number. If this bill is passed we will do the math and see what percentage of luxury and corporation tax we need to balance the budget. As to your second question, we do not know what these taxes will impact negatively. It seems as though we would be taking money from the people who can afford luxury goods, and from the corporations of Telamon.

Random fact: The people in your nation don't like inactive parties. When you often abstain from voting for a bill, they will dislike your party and your visibility to the electorate will decrease significantly. Low visibility will means you are likely to lose seats. So keep in mind: voting Yes or No is always better than Abstaining.
