    Default What the media didn't report about the RedC poll

    https://soundmigration.wordpress.com...ve-journalism/

    88% support a higher rate of income tax for those earning more than 100k pa - and yet no one reported this. Why?

    A bit odd when the same survey shows the party proposing to raise income tax has the support of 14%

    Shock horror, many people earning x amount, think people earning more than them should pay more.

    You should actually read the question that was asked in the survey.

    What the public would prioritise for implementation in the budget?

    If you were the government and you had to decide which of these to implement…which one would you implement first ,which others would you consider implementing, if you had to implement more than one and which would you definitely not implement, if at all possible


    Higher taxes for middle/highincome earners (over €100k household income)
    Public Sector pay cuts
    Cuts in welfare payments including child benefit and pensions
    Higher taxes for all

    You should mention public servants more in your posts.
    But are you strong enough to point that high-powered perception at your own party?
    The world is a very puzzling place. If you're not willing to be puzzled, you just become a replica of someone else's mind.

    If they measured the 100K AFTER public sector equivalent AVC's are deducted, then fair enough.

    It is quite odd - but seeing that it would affect the majority of RTE's stars, I suppose it's not surprising that they have tried to keep it under wraps.

    Everybody supports a tax increase that doesn't effect them. We cannot run the country that way. We can only makes decisions which are economically sound.
