End negative gearing and the capital gains tax discount

The Australian Dream of home ownership is dead!

The Liberal/National government need to be made aware of the social impact unaffordable housing is doing to a generation of young Australians who want nothing more than the opportunity to have a stable place to live in which to start a family.

The political system simply refuses to recognise and deal with this problem and considers generous tax concessions to investors as being more important than an enacting a comprehensive, affordable housing policy that deals with growing homelessness, middle income families stuck in the rental trap in our major cities and rising inequality.

It is time that millennials, generation Xers and sympathetic babyboomers form a coalition and voice our anger at a political system that has ignored us for far too long. We need to come together and show the power we have as a demographic bloc as the 2017 budget approaches. We will not accept a lower standard of living than our parents. We want to have a stable place we can call home, where we can raise our children and have a connection to the community.

If you want to resurrect the Australian ideal of a "fair go" where middle income Australians can afford a home without taking on extraordinary levels of debt and all Australians, rich or poor, have a stable roof over their heads then please sign this petition.
