Apart from the attack on carers in the recent budget have a look at this Monday Newspaper Review - Irish Business News and International Stories - - December 17, 2012
A charge being levied on cancer patients who have contributed to this so called society, but who have fallen through the net re medical cards and cannot afford health insurance. Add to this absurd charges for calling out an ambulance or the fire brigade! Imagine treating people who have contributed to our society in such a way in their hour of need! It's Unforgiveable!
Yet, if you have never ever contributed i.e. paid tax on your labour, there is no charge! I exempt from that criticism people who are looking after children or sick relations, in genuine full time education, who are genuinely sick or disabled or who are in prison! If you were capable of working during the Celtic Tiger time and chose not to, when/where will you work and what do we owe you exactly?
