National Party Support Of Amazon Corporate Welfare Cronyism Is A Disgrace



The National Party need to take a good hard
look at themselves, following their Economic Development
spokesperson’s endorsement of Kiwi taxpayers stumping up
for welfare for the American multi billion dollar
corporation, Amazon.

Responding to Todd
McClay’s media
release
, Jordan Williams, the Taxpayers’
Union
’s Executive Director, said:

“Without
any hint of irony, Mr McClay welcomes the corporate welfare,
claims that the previous National Government did it better,
then bizarrely says the Government shouldn’t ‘creating a
bidding war’ for films companies to shoot in New
Zealand.”

“Todd McClay says Amazon’s decision is
a result of the ‘hard work and dedication of kiwis’.
He’s right in that regard: writing cheques from taxpayers,
most of whom see no benefit of increased profits going to
Jeff Bezos, is indeed off the back of hard
work.”

“The National Party need to make a break
from Stephen Joyce-style corporate welfare largesse. It
needs to stand with the battlers, the entrepreneurs, and the
job
creators.”
