I have no doubt people will agree when they work out that would increase their take home pay.
However, spot the irony:
Opposition ACC spokesperson Iain Lees-Galloway said the corporation’s big surplus was gouged from the pay packets of hard working New Zealanders.
This is a spokesman from Labour, the party that contributed to ACC’s financial liabilities by adding more categories of beneficiaries without increasing funding sufficiently.
His party has fought tax cuts which leave more in the pay packets of hard working New Zealanders.
And his party is going to increase taxes to gouge more from those same pay packets of the same hard working New Zealanders and add a Capital Gains Tax too.
That’s not irony, that’s hypocrisy.
