Families can be asked to pay an extra €3000 in taxes.

But most won't be able to afford such rises.

Yes, and they reckon €3,000 is a minimum.

Looking for more tax when the worst excesses of social welfare abuse and the worst excesses of public sector allowances have been allowed to prevail is a travesty of leadership.

They'll be paying loads of corporation tax though, so it's all good.

Not if the leadership involves the leader and his/her cronies having their noses deep in the trough it ain't...

In fact considering how screwed Ireland is... it could be argued that the leadership have done a tremendous job in keeping the fat salaries, pensions and pay offs for themselves and their ilk as well as failing miserably to tackle the ludicrous CPA...

If accurate, straw, camel and back come to mind...
All though the poor camels back has been said to about to break so often, its like the boy who cried wolf.

This is because Banks/currency are more important than families. They have a special status called 'systemic importance'.

Time to change the systemic pecking order.

Especially with the wolf at the door.

And to be honest, most of those that can shouldn't have to - we're being ridden by our high public sector cost, from ludicrous pensions to ex-CEOs of state funded banks, to lifestyle allowances to every form of lowlife and funding a public sector that isn't performing - address the cost side as promised, not screw the earners.

Jeez what do you expect when we cannot pay out a few college grants. We should be good at this, since we are doing it since the state was formed. Says a lot about us.......

To a system where savers deposits and their currency/money are unimportant*?

I'd love to see that system.

*maybe families don't save or earn money, so maybe these are irrelevant to them.

We'll just have to get a second job to pay for our taxes and mortgage increases....
.. hold on we live in Ireland.

Let me start again

We'll just have to give up our jobs so that our taxes and mortgage increases get paid by some sap.

Can't take much more, we will do as told by ENDA-220'000kpa as usual that is why they can keep sending us the austerity and themselves the fat pensions and salaries. We will do nothing, we will not band together, we will not take a collective stand against the government policies and we can look forward to paying the PN next march without batting an eyelid. Ahh yes a great little country to do business in, full of green shoots, turning corners and broadband rollout.
