Next week when the rest of the budget is passed the gov. will bow to pressure and reverse the cut on Respite Care.
This was the plan all along.
Im sure alot of us here realise this but the general public are always taken in. Why? because the gov. are playing on their very real fears.
The kite flying in years gone past whereby disastrous cuts where "leaked" before the budget seem to have been replaced with this cynical ploy.
Distract the media and general public from the real deep cuts such as PRSI and the property tax and avoid attention on all the other stealth taxes. For instance a drivers license is almost doubling to 55euro from next year.
