Lost your job? Screw you.

Health problems? Screw you.

Fired for no reason? Screw you.

Can’t afford a house? Screw you.

Figure you’ll upskill while there’s no jobs? Screw you.

Making a few million a year and want tens of thousands of dollars more in tax cuts? Screw… Wait, what? Will that be cash or cheque, sir?

    1 in 8 are on welfare. I dispute this figure. With WFF’s, farmers calling in debt calling WINZ, and the reems of pro-business support, I ask who isn’t in welfare. Surely the Human Rights Commission have something to say abouot this blantently wrong statistic – as it discriminates against those on one type of welfare.

    But anywho. Let’s take the number and see what we can do with it. We know rich people, live in well off areas and do not as a rule go on welfare (well maybe WFF), so we know the most destitute areas will have welfare up in 1 in 2, or getting there as the economy continues to dive. So let’s just see what Key is really saying, less money into poor areas because welfare ‘costs too much’, that means more crime, more police, more cells, MORE COSTS on the taxpayer.

    Yes, you guessed it! National want to grow the economy, the crime economy.

    According to PWC everybody is going to be better off. I would like to see their figures and workings but I haven’t seen or found the report – only the Campbell Live rendition seems available.

      I thought the same DTB and I also thought straight away that the people in Auckland’s cost are going to be quite a bit different from someone living in say Dunedin.

      Also they combined some incomes so was the tax break calculated on the total amount or as two smaller separate amounts. Also the figures did not have a below average wage amount and how many people fall into this category. My understanding is these people will be worse off and make up a significant proportion of the population .
