Australian Government's tax woes

Hopefully the Australian Federal Government won't succeed in bullying State Premiers to agree to increase and extend the GST.It would grossly unfair for it to charged o0n fresh food and medical costs. The solution to the Government's financial problems is fairly simple – Slash unnecesary spending. Withdraw all our troops from the Middle East (that will also be a great step in countering the radicalisation of Muslim youths. Cut our so-called Defence budget and Department by 50% and slash the travel and other entitlements for politicians and senior bureaccrats aslso by 50%. That would result in annual savings of around one billion dollars and help to get the Budget back on track.
