Correct it taxes it citizenry, A few points here Phil,
1/ Who said you have to have tax cuts (thou I wouldn't mind), the tax
thresholds are not even inflation adjusted (but benefits are)
so we have had to bear 10 years of tax creep, thou because if you are
middle class and well behaved you get WFF, and Save and you
get KS bribes. If you are childless and middle class you get screwed
2/ 20 Billion increase in govt spending not small! 20%+ increase in
numbers, Kiwisaver alone added another 400! (and thats only the start)

So they can work for a Govt dept? Get real, when you have the largest
employer in NZ increase its staff what do you think will happen?
