What the Christ are National going on about now?
A fund that rich people pay into to fund welfare?
We already have s system for that, it’s called taxation!
National are suggesting this to inoculate themselves from their tax cut of the top tax rate that will see average workers getting $800 while Chris Luxon will get $18000!
This is bullshit!
Collect tax with a proper tax system, don’t open trusts that the rich can donate into! What is this, a plutocracy?
This is the Gothem City Charitable Trust is it?
National are out sourcing the obligations of the State to the generosity of the rich?
Why are National trying right wing experiments at a time when we face geopolitical shock waves?
Didn’t Lizz Truss show everyone this kind of thing doesn’t work?
National want to implement more ‘social investment’ bullshit which is what spawned Oranga Tamariki. Why adopt more Frankenstein neoliberal experiments in welfare?
National want more neoliberal policy in welfare, it won’t work.
Nicola Willis is a Welfare Hawk and she will rip strips off beneficiaries while Luxon will offer his thoughts and prayers.
