Arrogant: Government attempt to ‘buy’ social welfare recipients with water charge benefit

The Government has announced it’s going to introduce measures in tomorrow’s Budget to help recipients of social welfare pay their water charges.

There’s also meant to be a household benefit package that
will increase the threshold
at which people hit the top rate of income tax, reducing the top rate and also changes to the USC.

This just shows how arrogant the government is. They realise the majority of protests are from the working class people, and thus simply try and throw SOME money at them. Do they not realise middle-Ireland and even upper class Ireland are fed up of these immoral taxes and no one will pay? Working class people must remain steadfast and keep protesting with everyone else. We’re all in this together and the government are firmly running scared at people power. This feeble attempt will only fuel the fire.
