Strokestown based businessman and former bye election candidate Emmett Corcoran has criticised comments made by the Taoiseach, that income tax would need to be increased by 4% should water charges be abolished. Mr. Corcoran believes that it is this “pathetic attempt at threatening the people, and calling it logic” that has lead this country to where it is today.
“There is one major point I feel all sides have missed in the great water charge debate, and that is this- why are we accepting the premise that more money will fix the problem?” stated Emmett this week. “There is no evidence whatsoever that this nor any government has the competency to fix our water infrastructure. They say 1.2bn isn’t enough, well who’s to say that 10bn or 20bn will be enough. When does it end? When does the waste end?”
Corcoran explained “Yet again the government has a problem and their solution is to put a metaphorical gun to the heads of the Irish public and say pay up or else. At long last people have woken up to the reality (all be it for mislead reasons for some of the objectors) that this tax frenzied approach to economic management must stop.”
Mr. Corcoran went on to say that virtually everything the government has touched has become a wasteful mismanaged black hole of government spending. “Take health for example, once central government got it’s hands on it, it became a wasteful bureaucratic nightmare.”
A noticeably angered Corcoran expressed his concern that if we do not stop the madness now in five years we will not be asking the government to abolish water charges, rather we will be asking them why has nothing been fixed and where has all the money gone?
“The government has gotten too big for it’s own good and we need to stop this failed socialist experiment before ten generations of Irish people are destroyed.”
Corcoran concluded by explaining that when the banks failed we cried blue murder, “why are we bailing out the banks we asked?”. He said that we face a similar scenario right now with the government. They are already extorting extraordinary amounts of money from the public, and because they cannot control their spending they want more. “It’s about time we said no, you’re already taking enough now figure it out, the hemorrhage must be stopped.”
"If you're willing to keep moving forward, eventually you will succeed."
