Financial pain not shared equally

The Government has introduced the most unfair Budget in the State's history. One simple comparison confirms this.
A family with an income of €250,000 a year will receive a cut of €75 per week. A family on €25,000 per year will lose €20 per week. Despite the first family having 10 times the salary of the second family they only receive three times the cut.
