    Survey Introduction and Speech on Housing Affordability

    Senator Day explains why Sydney and Melbourne have been confirmed as two of the least affordable cities in the world for home buyers, in a recently published survey introduction and Senate speech.

    The true culprit is artificial land supply by State Governments, which denies the wealth & security of home ownership to the current generation.

    Wind power an expensive con

    Damning new evidence has exposed the exaggerations of the wind industry, which has delivered five times less electricity than its claimed potential and added $50 per year to bills.
    According to Senator Bob Day, “wind turbine owners might be making a fortune but wind power is costing SA families a fortune. It is a con.” Read the full story here.
    The Senate Committee into Wind Turbines (of which Senator Day was Deputy Chair) reports are available to read: Interim and Final.

    What’s happening in the Senate?

    There’s a lot of debate about what’s happening in Federal politics, and a welcome return to a focus on the parties and independents represented in the Senate. Senator Bob Day took office on 1 July 2014 and has already voted in support of repeal of the carbon tax and mining tax, whilst fighting to retain vital low income and family support measures.

    GST Increase? No way says Senator Day

    Senator Bob Day has declared his strong opposition to a 50% increase in the GST.
    “Families, households, individuals already pay enough tax for the services of government, some $385 billion a year – yet the government spends $420 billion a year, they have to cut their cloth like everyone else.”
    Last November Senator Day showed the major parties how to reduce duplication, blame-shifting and unnecessary spending – which is the pathway to more money for vital health services, as well as the way to Budget surplus.

Nuclear Submarines – Question Time

Groton, Conn. (July 30, 2004) - The nationÕs newest and most advanced nuclear-powered attack submarine and the lead ship of its class, PCU Virginia (SSN 774) returns to the General Dynamics Electric Boat shipyard following the successful completion of its first voyage in open seas called "alpha" sea trials. Virginia is the NavyÕs only major combatant ready to join the fleet that was designed with the post-Cold War security environment in mind and embodies the war fighting and operational capabilities required to dominate the littorals while maintaining undersea dominance in the open ocean. Virginia and the rest of the ships of its class are designed specifically to incorporate emergent technologies that will provide new capabilities to meet new threats. Virginia will be delivered to the U.S. Navy this fall. U.S. Navy photo by General Dynamics Electric Boat (RELEASED)
