Reason 25: There Is An Alternative Based on Taxation
If anyone says there is no alternative to spending cuts, direct them to the Claiming Our Future analysis which brings together a large menu of tax measures that would not impact on low-average income groups. Here is the summary:
When excluding proposals to introduce an annual property taxes and a rise in corporate tax rate, Claiming our Future estimates the Government could raise between €4.7 and €5.4 billion – enough not only for Budget 2013, but for Budget 2014 as well.
Why should we march? Because there are alternatives to spending cuts and tax increases on low-average income earners.
