Reduction in Child Benefit Since 2008

     Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael and Labour Made Huge Reductions in Child Benefit Since 2008

These reductions applied equally to households  of the unemployed and to households with huge incomes.  For example, an unemployed parent with 3 children lost 1416 Euro per year from 2008 to 2015.Bigger families suffered disproportionately higher losses. This is cruel, uncivilised and anti-human behaviour by these parties. As can be seen in my post on this blog-Irish Super-rich Awash with Money-the top 10,000 income tax payers have average annual incomes declared to revenue of 595,000Euro  each. They wouldn’t notice a reduction of 1416 euro!
