Lenihan cowers from tough Budget calls

If the Finance Minister ever held a conference call with the Irish people, I would like to ask him why he has, to date, cowered away from making tough decisions when such tough decisions are so desperately needed.

So far, in our emergency, Fianna Fail has cut the pay of a portion of public workers, shrinking from cutting the pay of semi-state workers.

Welfare payments were cut, but not the state old age pension or occupational state pensions.
