Mr Ring will table the amendments to reverse the cuts this evening.
Mr Ring said: "For the second year in a row, the Government has decided to punish the most vulnerable members of society.
"Last year Brian Lenihan and Eamon Ó Cuív imposed unfair and cruel cuts on blind people, widows, carers and people with disabilities. But that wasnt enough for them. This year they did the same again.
Personally I feel they haven't a hope of getting renegade Fianna FAILures to vote against the party, but credos to them for trying.
