Politicians of all stripes should be focussed on removing stamp duty and improving housing supply if they are serious about addressing housing affordability

    Stamp Duty is an easy income stream for politicians and bureaucrats so they don't have to think too hard about proper tax reform structure as it is beyond most of them. Agree that it is one of the biggest hurdles to home ownership in this country we are ready to stick it to the politicians about paying for Doctors visits but sit back and do nothing when they hit us with a $33,000 tax bill for the right to own our own home.
