Really? I mean – really??
Prime Minister John Key outlines the Government’s priorities for the year
Prime Minister John Key has revealed a $17 billion hole in the economy from falling dairy prices but says the Government remains committed to tax cuts.
A “$17 billion hole in the economy” (kinda puts the supposed benefits of the TPP into perspective doesn’t it).
An estimated $18 billion lost because National stopped investing in the super fund.
A record national debt – $118 billion and counting.
And we’re still talking about tax cuts? Lunacy!
Yes, Labour has earmarked National’s budgeted tax cuts to pay for its free tertiary education policy. In my opinion Labour will have to raise taxes, e.g. back to the levels of 2008.
