It really is incredible how our Governments continually shirk the hard decisions...
First we had Mr Bruton announcing how he wanted to reduce the wage earning capacity of the lower income sector,ie: those covered by JLC's or other collective agreements....now we have this lad Hogan warning largely the same grouping that the Gubbermint wants to take more money offa them for "services"...whatever these may be ?
It was left to Ms Burton to keep the flag flying for the poor oul "underprivileged" who,naturally enough,in a caring society will be spared the indignity of having to pay for stuff...such as Public Transport,Telephone Rental,Accomodation Rental....etc etc etc....
If the books were skewed when this coalition took over,it's looking as if they'll be roasted by the time they leave !!!!
We really are in a banana republic.
The biggest spending departments social welfare and health.
