My Weekly Rant number 1 Child Benefit
Child benefit and taxes
Child benefit in the UK
So apparently if you earn £44 thousand or more per year your well off and being well off means you no longer will receive the Child Tax Benefit under our new Conservative Government or is it Liberal or is it both!!!.So is that going to sort out our Countries debt errrr i don't think so. Once again its an attack on honest hardworking families.
One Government after another comes along with manifestos that promise the earth and like the previous Government before them it either never happens or they simply backtrack on what they pledged they would do and as far as i am concerned they are completely out of touch with the public!!
If you own a 3 Bedroom semi-detached house run 2 cars have 2 children and heat and light your home then your NOT and i repeat NOT well off if you earn £44K per year.
Child Benefit should be there for low income families as well as hardworking families.Look we all live to our meansdont we? We teach our children to study hard at school get an education which should lead to a good job and earn a decent wage. Well thats all very well but the high level of living costs in this country along with unaffordable housing rising energy costs etc how much money do you have to earn to now be so called Middle Class.
So what do we all do give up get a lower paid job or claim all the benefits under the sun?
No of course not because we work for our pride and self worth as well as the money we earn and it seems to me the harder you work in the UK the more you are penalised
Surely the more money you earn the more tax you pay right?
So this means you are contributing more to the system right?
So why is it then that when you do have an additional welcome benefit in the form of child benefit that is then deemed right to take it away?
Child Benefit should be for all after all if you pay into the system surely you are entitled to benefits.
The Government should stop penalising the honest hard working general public and get the money off the countless scroungers in this country who cant be bothered to get off their backside and do an honest days work. These people don't contribute into the system and are freeloading off us hard working tax payers who fund their lifestyles.
Leave the Child Benefit alone!!!
At the same time we all need to stick together and try and do our bit to help the country out of these current uncertain times and reduce the deficit.
Well the banks need to help us help ourselves and start lending money again!!!!
The banks got us in this mess and are still making huge profits in a recession.We need as a country to encourage growth get people back into work and build affordable housing that youngsters can afford without the ridiculous deposits the banks are expecting from them.
We have a long road ahead and a double dip recession is on the cards so the government should think hard and reconsider the child benefit!!!
