Middle classes being pushed to the brink

I AGREE with TD Michael Ring that the middle classes are at the limit. If you feel like you're not in the game you become indifferent to the fate of yourself and of your country. And, even worse, you tend to get bitter towards everyone.

To the Government, which I have confidence in, please pause and think before proceeding with even higher living costs because some will see that the only way out is suicide, and that's not fair to anyone.
