Budget 2016 – unless we prioritise vital, well targeted spending over tax cuts, the misery for many will continue.
- Prioritise spending on income and services for people on low income over tax cuts for the rich and middle incomes
- Restore cuts in income and services affecting low income households during the recession, including those affecting lone parents
- Implement Government policy to ‘poverty-proof’ all decisions and the overall budget
- Signal a multi-annual social investment plan to build an inclusive Ireland without poverty
