Headline: National makes promises, ACT will make them happen
ACT will push the Government hard to follow through on tax cuts and road pricing, says party leader David Seymour.
“Steven Joyce made all the right noises on tax cuts and demand-based road pricing in his speech today. This comes after constant pressure from ACT to adopt these ideas.
“Unfortunately, National has a depressing record of campaigning from the right and governing from the left. They talk about respecting taxpayers and then introduce new taxes. They talk about cutting red tape but then introduce new flawed regulations.
“The fact that National has at least paid lip service to these ideas means they’ll have to follow through after the election – so long as there is a strong ACT to hold them to their word.
“National can talk all they want about fixing congestion and cutting tax, but only ACT will make them actually do it.”
