Do Tax Cuts Have To Be Small?

Dr Cullen admits that his tax cuts won't be as large as those that National will be proposing. He falls back to the usual line that bigger cuts (it used to be - "any cuts") will be at the cost of social services. But will they? We don't see National proposing cuts to education, health, social development etc. What we do see is calls for waste in Government expenditure to be reduced and a stemming of the growth of Government agencies. These, as everyone in Wellington knows, are growing without control. Is this leading to improved social services? No.
