Middle Income Earners And Pensioners Need Lift In Budget

By October 5, 2016No Comments

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.
