Alliance Spending Sends Runner Around The Globe

Long distance runner, Seigfried Bauer must be hugely relieved that the Alliance
cancelled its plan to have him running to highlight their spending promises.

ACT Finance Spokesman Rodney Hide said the Alliance's six billion-dollar
spending plan would have seen the long distance runner face the greatest
challenge of his career, circumnavigating the globe.

"If you laid the 300 million $20 notes end to end that Jim Anderton wants to
spend, they would go right around the globe

"The issue of job creation and business growth is extremely serious for New
Zealand. Taxing hard working New Zealanders and their businesses into the
ground costs jobs and thousands of them.

"Jim Anderton's $20 vision for New Zealanders who are out of work and need jobs
is a disgrace. They deserve real jobs. ACT wants to help people off welfare
and into real jobs.

"ACT's economic policies are about strong businesses and creating jobs. That
is why ACT's policies are recognised as being the best policies for the
economy, for jobs and for growth," said Rodney Hide.
