Fianna Fail argue that now is not the right time to bring in a property tax, they're not against the idea but just not for now.
Anybody listening to Liveline yesterday would of heard some harrowing stories regarding this tax.
It is expected to take in about 500 million euro per annum.
My suggestion, we spend 600 million euro a year on foreign aid. For a period of up to five years we scale it back by 80% and at the same time suspend the property tax for upto five years.
When the economy turns around and missed mortgage repayments and other issues with the banks and property have very much improved, we then introduce a property tax and increase our foreign aid.
Quite bluntly, every, yes every cent and euro collected in property tax will be cancelled out by our foreign aid commitments. 500 million euro in and 600 million euro in aid out.
