progressive-economy@tasc: At least one party gets it
Michael Taft of TASC is endorsing the Sinn Féin budget which makes very little cuts and instead follows the populist "tax the rich" policy.
It also makes €600m available to restore the Christmas bonus and other welfare programs. Simply something we can't afford at this time.
This economic think tank and other groups would rather we keep our luxuries now and let it be paid for by future generations such as myself!
God help us if TASC holds any influence on public policy. They seem to be very popular among Labour supporters too! If this is the kind of "progressive" thought that is supposed to save us I might as well pack my bags now. The bond markets would sink us within seconds if we were to pass a budget like this.
