…and it was good… for they both apparently agree that tax cuts are what is needed. Or so said the Taoiseach, and Pat Rabbitte agrees…

Speaking on RTÉ Radio, Mr Rabbitte said tax relief was economically justifiable as it would stimulate consumer spending, for which there would be an economic return.

So, the minister responsible for introducing an internet tax sees no inconsistency with arguing for tax cuts.

old wine in new bottles- no chance of corporation tax being upped?,no chance of a welath tax? just another subsidy to the boss class- you won’t increase wages that’s fine we’ll lower taxes, but for how many people 10% 15%?
Intereting that Rabbitte sees ths as some kind of stimulus- that peole will spend their extra cash. What if thay use it to pay off debts, loans and mortgages, What if they use it to save up for a rainy day?
