National launches tax attack – MSN

National has launched an all-out tax attack against Labour, boosted by Tuesday night’s poll and believing it’s finally getting the upper hand in the election campaign.

It has just released a video using the slogan “Let’s tax this” – a play on Labour’s campaign theme “Let’s do this”.

The video will soon be running on TV and online with the message that a Labour government could impose at least six new taxes which would stall the economy.

“New Zealand currently has a broad-based, fair tax system,” campaign manager Steven Joyce said when he launched the video.
