Finally some sense in politics

By Gary R, in , posted: 20-Mar-2008 13:33

I haven't had a political rant for a while but I must say that I am impressed with Roger Douglas. Yes, this would be the same Roger Douglas who gave us 'Rogernomics'. The slash and burn financial policies of the post Muldoon era of the early 1980's. Regardless of what you think of that time and the methods used the fact remains that Roger did drag us kicking and screaming into the brave new world of globalisation.

Now he is at again on the far right of the ACT Party and I can't help but agree with (some) of what he is proposing:

- Cut the top tax rate to 33c in the dollar
- Adjust tax thresholds
- First $20K of income tax free
- Get rid of 'welfare for families'

With all the farting around and bickering between Labour and National it refreshing to see a party laying all the policy cards on the table rather than dealing them up one at a time.

It almost suspiciously seems that Roger has been reading my blog. Perhaps the Jama Party should join forces with ACT.

All the Jama Party needs is 500 paying members to be registered

Privatise the health system?
Renting out hospital wards to health staff to practice privately?
Nope, wont get my vote.
