 Q: How do your ideas and policies differ from those being proposed by the other party?

At times our ideas could be very similar.  Everybody I think generally has the best interest of the community in mind, but there are different ideas, and we have the same ideas with different ways to get there.  There was a proposal some time back for senior tax relief.  We were to investigate various types of tax relief and the concept was accepted by most people.  The issue was, how much?  How do we get there?
