Timing wrong for helicopter cash - Grant Robertson

From Morning Report, 7:13 am on 15 May 2020

Grant Robertson's big Budget is out.

There's been a range of reactions to the Government's big spend on $50 billion to fight Covid-19, which includes an extension to the wage subsidy, $1.1 billion for green jobs and a $20 million war chest.

What's not in it is a raise to benefit levels, helicopter cash payments to stimulate the economy or any changes to the tax system.

Robertson speaks to Kim Hill.
