Politik reported Marama Davidson on Morning Report:
“I’ll be really, really clear. I don’t think it’s appropriate to have surpluses while we have floodings happening in countries, where we’ve got floods happening, where we’ve got homelessness, I don’t think it’s appropriate that we’re holding onto surpluses in that way.”
Just think about this. The Green co-leader says we should be borrowing money and running a deficit because there is flooding in other countries.
This shows that there is no limit to how much the Greens want to tax New Zealand taxpayers. Basically her argument is that if anyone anywhere in the world is struggling, we should tax ourselves more and spend more to fix it.
