Budget so unfair

• The Government said the Budget would be tough but fair. Judge for yourself:

1) I am a pensioner with seven children aged from 17 to five. One of them has special needs. Cuts in respite care, child benefit and the back-to-school grant has left my family worse off by €2,100 a year.

2) A couple earning €250,000 a year with a family home worth €1.5m, two children and two rental properties are worse off by €2,200 a year.
