    Default Brian Hayes says we're tax enough!

    Can anyone believe this muppet.
    Does this mean that FG won't be getting the really high earners to pay a bit more?
    Looking after their mates eh?

    What effective marginal rate would you apply?

    What growth?
    Exports? What a joke nowhere near enough to drag things up
    Domestic economy is in bad shape, many shops are shut look around your town lots of shirts have been lost, mostly due to FG increases in tax VAT up, property tax, car tax up, water metering coming soon. And they expect the economy to grow?

    How is that going to happen. Even David Copperfield could not pull that one off. They won't tax the super rich (pals of FG) Labour have lost their mojo (if they ever actually had one) and won't say a word.

    I hope things do get better, but it's a bit like saying you're going to lose weight, and eat pure lard for dinner every day, ain't gonna happen folks.

    Sounds like he's at odds with the pfg which includes an agreed split of the correction between taxes and cuts. Labour will not be happy.

    The abandonment of the threshold ceiling at which each worker pays PRSI was an effective tax increase.

    There'll always be a different way to raise "taxes" without touching rates.

    Are you saying taxes are too high or are too low?
    (or is it just more of "make the rich pay for the crisis")

    ah, Hayes is a great man....

    What else do you do when you're at the trough but to pop your head up for a second to say the plebs are taxed enough.

    Are you saying you want to pay more tax?
