No To New Tax
The Taxpayers' Union is welcoming the Fairfax Media/Ipsos Poll published yesterday which suggested that well over two-thirds of New Zealanders support the Union's position that taxes should not be raised for new government spending.
The poll found that of the 1018 people asked, 69.4% opposed raising taxes to pay for new spending.
"Politicians will need to sit up and take notice" says Taxpayers' Union Spokeswoman, Gabrielle O'Brien. "Politicians that go into the election with big spending promises will need to find savings elsewhere or will be punished at the ballot box."
"New Zealanders joining the Taxpayers' Union are telling us that households are already taxed too much. Politicians should be trimming public waste before increasing the tax burden," says Ms O'Brien.
