Today medical students, tomorrow ...

John Key expects taxpayers to pay medical students to go to school.  He expects those with very little to be taxed to subsidise those who can be expected to earn a lot. 

This is presumably what it means to be "ambitious for New Zealand" -- to pick the pocket of Peter just to fill the pockets of Paul.

Subsidies have been the hallmark of National Governments past; they will clearly also be the hallmark of would-be National Governments of the future.

It's like the bad old days all over again, isn't it.
