An ERSI report shows that this govt looks after the top earners – not the ‘early risers’ nor the ‘squeezed middle’! Figures show that the last budget left average households WORSE off than before. Lower income housholds lost most. And according to economist Michael Taft, the real winners over the last 8 years are the very high earners. Average housholds are paying more tax, and are poorer than before the budget. Some recovery!
