Despite the alleged upturn in the economy the Government must do something for middle income earners in Tuesday’s budget. I would be proposing a substantial cut in the USC rate for salaries under 65,000 Euro per year. I also think that no one would begrudge pensioners of a rise of 5 Euro per week in their pension. I will be speaking in the Dail on both these issues this week and seeking support for that position prior to the budget next week.
