I have today heard on the Dutch News that the budget i going to take more money from the people that have the lowest income, while the people with the higher income are not going to lose mthat much money.

This link is for the news website so you can also read it, however it is in DUtch so you will have to use a translator ( sorry ).



Moderators : I can not put this in a link to the site, would you be so kind to correct it for me please? Much thanks in advance.

LOL! Anti-Robinhood. The U.S. has been pulling anti-robinhoods' on its people for 200 years. Welcome to my corner of the garbage dumpster.

Let's keep in mind here that Robin Hood didn't steal from the rich and give to the poor!

The people were over taxed. Robin Hood stole back from the tax collectors and gave the money back to the people.

He isn't a progressive hero and you can't have him.

They are going to cut the Child Support, which is used by the lower incomes for exactly what it is for: namely things for the children ( clothes, shoes, etc.. )

Actually that is true, I am only upset because it will affect me directly.
They are not just gonna cut Child Support, they are cutting the tax benefit to help with the rent, Health Care and other tax benefits for the lower income, just so they can cut the state debt by €18.000.000.000,- in a certain amount of time! I say: Leave the poor alone and put extra taxes on the upper incomes!!!!! That should generate am tax retinue of ~€ 10.000.000.000 in less time.
