Lenihan, wake up and smell coffee

Can any financial expert answer me this question? How is the tough Budget forecast for December going to stimulate the economy or do anything to keep companies and businesses from closing, or shorten the lines at social welfare offices, or create jobs for the thousands unemployed?

Because, taking even more money from people's pockets is going to lead to the same people spending even less and struggling even more to keep the wolves from their doors.

The only thing this Budget will do is continue to line the Government's coffers and keep them in the luxuries they enjoy so much, while the rest of us flounder under massive bills and service hikes. Wake up and smell the coffee, Brian Lenihan and cohorts.
