Simon Bridges, Leader of the National Party focused on the post-Budget economy, highlighting two major differences between the two main parties; The spending in the Labour Budget and in other spending uses universal entitlements. National, by comparison, would target financial assistance to people who need it. Since Labour took office, the National Debt has risen and GDP growth Labour attributes this problem to international issues, whereas National believes it is due to loss of confidence among small business owners because of decreasing profitability due to regulations such as the rise in the minimum wage. As Bridges sees it, Labour are funding spending on low income people by increasing the level of national debt.
