How about abolishing USC and property tax giving the bloody perpetually screwed tax payer something back. My son lost his job earlier this year working since he was 14 but he's not entitled to the bonus payment. But sit on your arse for 10/20 years and it's here ya go 200 euro😡

And nothing for those paying the bloody taxes

So the ones who have made a life style choice of not ever working for a living will be laughing all the way to the local shop to get their scratchcards, ciggies & cans. The eyebrow and nail industry will see a handsome return.

What about a bonus for not being on social welfare LeoVaradkar or the state getting something in return? Clean streets maybe? We are a two income family but we are all feeling the pressure not just those on benefits already. RipoffIreland

And what do the working class get ?

It's time PAYE workers hold a national strike day, taxed to the bone, to pay for this, and all the other benefits for immigrants, everything free at our expense

what about me Leo ? I am taxpayer and I am getting Fu*k all

Remember he once said he’d stand for ‘people who get up early in the morning’ and that ‘they deserve a break’

Nothing for the worker? 👍well done lads playing a blinder 🙄

Enjoy the crums, peasants .

What are the doing to stop so called refugees coming into the country and start looking true Irish people First these leftist red so called government

It still won't save f/g from the chop next election

What are they doing to drive down the cost of living?

In order for marxists to give you €100, they have to collect twice as much from you in taxes… Few understand this.
