Both sides of the political spectrum gave their view on the state of our nation today. We want to hear yours.

Prime Minister John Key confirmed plans to sell 1000 to 2000 state houses in the next year to be run by community housing providers. 

Key said the country was in good shape and the Government was working towards a surplus and repaying debt.

Labour leader Andrew Little said jobs were the key to New Zealand's future, and promised to offer small businesses more support, less form-filling, more research and development tax breaks, and more training. 

What's your view on the state of your nation? Where do you think the real problems lie and what do you think needs to be done to remedy them?

Do you agree with the changes to state housing and the focus on getting Kiwis into homes? Or are you with Little that jobs will help our country thrive?

Perhaps you've got another alternative you think is the key to our success.
