We highlighted that the planned Budget adjustment could be raised from various forms of taxation on wealth and corporations and removing reliefs that benefit higher income earners. The Government, could, if it made the choice, avoid any cuts to spending on public and community/voluntary services and welfare in the upcoming budget. We are calling on the Government to place the burden of adjustment on the sections of society who can afford to pay more - rather than inflicting further pain on lower and middle income sections of our society For more information email: planB@claimingourfuture.ie
