Lucia National Budget OK

As much as I am disappointed in National, listening to what Labour would do were they in charge made my skin crawl just now. A capital gains tax and compulsory super would save us all, apparently.

Meanwhile, National taking tax from kids' after-school jobs is a bit of an own goal. Doesn't make them look good, even though I'm pretty sure the rationale was to clamp down on parents channelling money through their tax-free children. Just because a loophole exists, doesn't mean you have to take it. A great example of the greedy ruining it for everyone.
