With the one hand he giveth, with the other…  June 28, 2017

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said he is determined that the Government will have enough money to cut income taxes in the October budget, even if that means raising other taxes.


And this is really getting tired…

“I am determined that we find some space to increase the take home pay of two million people who work really hard in this country, who get up every day, go to work, pay the taxes that make everything else possible,” the Taoiseach said.

Didn’t Joan Burton try the same shtick, before the final ignominious splutter of her party last year? Maybe it’ll play better with Johnny Breadroll, coming from a blue tory rather than a red one.

Wouldn’t another way to increase take home pay be to increase pay?

Let me guess – a decrease in income taxes for the middle class and an increase in indirect taxes which will make the poor poorer?

Yeah, that’s the only way it can really be done – what is it with these people that they think that if one has a fixed income that if one has less due to having to pay indirect taxes that somehow is functionally different from having less due to having higher income tax rates?
