Check out ACT’s anti-CGT campaign
Our society succeeds because it’s safe and worthwhile to forego spending today to save and invest for a better tomorrow. Not only has accumulating capital made us prosperous, it’s made life meaningful. Your decisions today will count tomorrow.
A capital gains tax, then, is not just about money. It’s not just about our attitude towards achievement and success. It’s really about whether your efforts make a difference and your choices are meaningful.
The Government’s plan for a capital gains tax, coming this week, is a proposal to idolise envy and celebrate mediocrity. ACT will be fighting Labour's envy tax vigorously. Our goal is to awaken opposition based on our country’s true values of meritocracy and achievement.
Our goal is to reach one million New Zealanders with this message. Our website is ready to go, and the first in a series of videos is here.
We want to push the Government back on this issue, or push them out of power, but we need you. Can we count on your support?
To give you an idea, it costs about $1 to reach 100 people. To reach a million people we must raise $10,000. If you think our message of meritocracy over mediocrity is important, please give generously.
