House of Reps aspirant, Barnaby Joyce, is building on his claim the carbon tax will push the price of a Sunday roast to $100 by saying a single cow or lamb could cost as much as a house.
The government derided his new claim of extravagantly expensive meals as deranged.
Queensland Senator Joyce is the Nationals' Senate leader. He has been at the forefront of Opposition Leader Tony Abbott's campaign against the carbon tax and said previously consumers would not be happy ''when they're paying over $100 for a roast''.
Senator Joyce denied on Sunday Mr Abbott had exaggerated the impact of the carbon tax on prices.
''Obviously we haven't had this tax in for a year,'' he said.
