Cunliffe’s backhanded admission of National’s extraordinary economic success

It’s well recorded history that Michael Cullen, back in 1999, declared that anyone on $60,000 or more per year was a “rich prick”.

Later, he changed his mind, and changed the Working for Families policy to cover families earning up to $70,000 and in some instances $80,000. 

Therefore, that under Labour what was considered Wealthy rose by about $10-20k per year.

Today, Cunliffe declared that everyone up to $150,000 needed welfare. That’s a massive leap $70,000 leap.

Given that success, it would be highly irresponsible to vote in another Labour government. Why, at that success rate, another two terms of National would put everyone under $300,000 on welfare!
