Robertson expects surplus

Finance minister Grant Robertson has announced that the upcoming budget on May 17th will see a surplus. 

This is a very big win for Labour. Often, their biggest problem, and National’s biggest asset, is that there is a belief Labour cannot be trusted with the economy.

However, this looks like it has come at their election promise of the lowering of prices for GP visits, something they’ve received a lot of criticism for.

Whether that choice to cut the GP visits promise for a surplus was the right one, or a good one, remains to be seen.

    Lowering prices for medical visits will certainly help the most needy and maybe that is why the most not-needy object because they feel they still don’t have enough. Is greed what this is about or is it jealousy? In any case it sounds like a good plan to me.
