    Tony Abbott:"If you want to put a price on carbon why not just do it with a simple tax. Why not ask motorists to pay more?
    Why not ask electricity consumers to pay more?

    And then at the end of the year, you can take your invoices to the tax office and get a rebate on the carbon tax you paid.

    It would be burdensome, all taxes are burdensome, but it would certainly change the price on carbon, raise the price of carbon without increasing in any way the overall tax burden."
