This is getting really desperate by National now.
Allowing you to dip into your savings so you can survive today is subsistence living…
National would make it easier for people who have lost their jobs due to the Covid-19 downturn easier to start their own business – with access to KiwiSaver and tax breaks, totaling at least $30,000.
The Business Start policy, launched in Petone today by leader Judith Collins, would allow people to access up to $20,000 of their KiwiSaver funds for a start-up business.
“It’s your money that you’ve put aside for a rainy day,” she said.
“Well, if you’ve lost your job, it’s not raining, it’s pouring.”
That’s really one hell of an election promise isn’t it? On top of Ghost roads & massive cutbacks in public funding, National will allow you to mortgage your retirement for survival today?
All they are promising is the chance to run out the emergency exits? It’s no dancing cossacks in terms of political marketing, but it’s certainly the dystopian nightmare I’ve come to know and love from Judith.
