Is it fair that the top 10% of wage and salary earners get 42% of the tax cuts and the bottom 20% get 2%?
Is it fair that someone on $1,000,000 gets $1,000 a week extra in the hand per week, and someone on the median income of $28,053 gets $4.64 in the hand per week after GST?
Is it fair that a regressive tax is increased to make a progressive tax less so?
Is it fair that the Minister of Revenue gets a tax cut of around $140 per week in the hand whereas someone on the median wage in his electorate gets about $5?
Nope didn’t think so – and neither do the vast majority of New Zealanders.
