Let's all take a pay cut

The Rudd government's determination to proceed with the promised tax cuts is simply an expression of the integrity we've cried for from our political leaders for a long time. They deserve our commendation. However the inflationary concerns of economists should not go unheeded either. Here's one suggestion to the Prime Minister or the Treasurer. Consult the nation, Sirs. Use talkback radio, internet polls and whatever practical means are available, to seek the mind of the electors (who are also taxpayers). Show us the arguments, sums and projections. Maybe we could all take a "wage freeze".
