Funny how the right wing media commentators all try and make out what a wonderful budget this is, and what a great job the Casino sponsored Gov’t is doing, when in reality it is something very different.
National’s borrowing alone means the country will be paying back $6 billion a year in interest – more than the budget itself.
They keep trying to convince us there is low unemployment and lots of jobs – in reality employers report that jobs they once used to get 2 or 3 applicants for, they now get 50 to 60. Manufacturers are collapsing by the week – and beg the Gov’t for help – yet are ignored.
Third World diseases and ailments now effect thousands of children around the Country, these have been increasing since National took power. The number of children under the poverty line now exceeds 100,000.
They are selling off 49% of State Owned assets, despite 80% of New Zealanders being against the sell off. This of course is their only way to ‘balance the books’ because of their total incompetence in everything else.
Yes – it mut be nice in the dream World the right wing media live in, while the rest of us still face the reality every day of trying to put food on the table.
