Labour stands for higher wages.
National stands for lower taxes.
There's a big difference. One is driven by a need for higher productivity, and is good for all of us: it leads to more cash in the hand for workers, more tax to reinforce public services, and a higher standard of living for everyone.
The other is saying, actually we can't cut it in the world, and the only way to improve our incomes is to slice away at the public sector, to give a small, short term boost to people's pockets.
One of the most important debates this year is to work out how best to boost wages, so incomes can grow and New Zealand can be more successful. Tax cuts aren't really at the core of that debate.
