Growing up on a benefit

"Seventy-five percent of New Zealand families will have targeted tax relief [through Working for Families]," says Little Steve Maharey on Newstalk ZB. Problem is, 'Working for Families' is not 'tax relief,' it is a benefit. It is welfare. It is a hand-out.

What this means then is that
thanks to this Nanny Government, 3/4 of this country will soon be on the mooch. Nanny is promising to provide, and they expect the voters to reward them accordingly.

As Barry Soper commented of this billion dollar spend-up, "the bung is well and truly out of the pork barrel." If successful, this Government will have used that pork barrel to turn us
in just two terms from a nation of sheeple, to a nation now almost completely sucking off the state tit.

Do you
really want to be a beneficiary? Do you want your children to grow up being beneficiaries? Little Stevie does. Michael does. Helen does.

Do you?

Do you?"

The proverb warns that `You should not bite the hand that feeds you.' But in the words of Thomas Szasz "maybe you should, if it prevents you from feeding yourself."

Let's hope enough kiwis can awaken from their slumber long enough to realise what is going on. Not going to hold my breath though.
