Price is wrong

So is this right? High earners from abroad don't like paying tax; septic tank owners don't want to clean up their effluent; ministers brought in the law that exempts them from the 'Second Home tax'; income from state pensions is not liable for the USC (this must include a lot of politicians); public servants are exempt from reductions in wages and must get their expected increments. Also, 40pc of the population is covered by full medical cards. So who is left to pay for it all?
