Poll: Are you willing to pay more tax to help people with disabilities and the homeless?

Tax cuts are expected in the next Budget because it’s a popular move – would you forego that so services can be improved?

AS WE COME ever closer to a general election, some positive little snippets from the government’s next Budget have been emerging.

It is expected that a cut to the Universal Social Charge will be on the cards offering some small relief to low income workers. However in an opinion piece today Aaron McKenna says the way in which politicians pander to the will of voters can be harmful to the most vulnerable in society.

He claims most people would vote for a higher cut to tax no matter what the additional revenue could do for the homeless people of those living with disabilities in Ireland.

We want to know what you have to say: Are you willing to pay more tax to help people with disabilities and the homeless?
