WILL BUDGET 2013 MAKE IRELAND NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN & WOMEN ?
Regrettably it would appear that the government intend to target Older People in Budget 2013. If you do not agree with the measures which have been well leaked in the media then
YOU MUST ACT NOW!
Contact your government TDS, Senators and Councillors and ask them to lobby to have these proposed measures reversed. Leaving it to others or waiting until after Wednesday’s announcement in the Dáil may be too late. Many ordinary representatives are very unhappy with what is being proposed and remember it is they who will have to vote for the proposals. Tell them how the cuts and changes will affect you.
NOW is the time to act if you do not agree with what is being proposed.
If you need your medical card, cannot afford to pay a tax on your home, cannot afford the prescription charge, the increased local authority rent or to heat your home then act now. Go to the clinics, telephone, email or send them a letter.
Remember to voice your concerns in a quiet and dignified manner but make sure they understand how you will be affected BY THEIR PROPOSALS.
