Bill English is announcing a $1.8 Billion surplus.
Yet.. We have families living in cars.
Well documented research that shows our Health system is desperately underfunded. We have thousands of school kids being fed by charity.
And what is English talking about? Tax breaks! It’s time to ask…
What’s an economy for? To benefit a select few? Or deliver the greatest good to the greatest number of our citizens over the longest time?
If the National led government also collected the estimated $5 Billion in tax evasion that happens every year we would have plenty of money to provide good housing and health care for everyone.
That’s the kind of break I’d like to see.
