Analysis of NHS and social policies
A chap works for £x per week doing 35 hours and would earn £x-£1.96 if he worked 16 hours and received a tax credit for not working more than 16 hours.Benefits 'pay' more than the minimum wage, especially for a mother with children. Who else can afford a two, three or four bedroom house and have 'spare' money?It's not nasty to say that those who *refuse* to work should not be given *my* tax, it's just good sense.And this blog's supposed to be about Tory lies, not about Tory promises! And as a Liberal Democrat, I don't see how this policy is anything but liberal -- it frees me from the binds of paying tax for something that is not necessary. I'd rather not get a tax break and spend that money on reducing class sizes -- but it shouldn't be spent on the idle.
