Parties on the left appear to think more is better when it comes to taxpayers’ money.
They want to take more so they can spend more.
In stark contrast to that National has focussed on getting value for money in the knowledge that in many areas the quality of spending is more important than the quantity.
The left’s policies tend to foster dependence where National is determined to help those who can stand on their own feet to do so.
That’s government for the people to their benefit, helping them lead more independent, hopeful and productive lives.
