Bulletin 7/4/2017


National announces better-than-expected surplus on higher tax revenue, which gives ACT a chance to complain about taxes.  National says the economy is doing great – you can decide for yourself whether that aligns with your experience.  Labour and Greens double-team the government on insufficient special education funding.  Labour also links the mishandling of the typhoid outbreak to insufficient health funding.  The Greens also raise the issues of date privacy in social services and medical cannabis.  Winston Peters tweets a link that appears to be their intended message for this election cycle.
