Some key elements of Budget 2013 are emerging through targeted leaks. All or most of them have the potential to affect you, your family and extended family. Many seem like proposals that may well emerge others may be just kite flying.
However NOW is the time to act if you do not agree with what is being proposed. I am urging you all to contact your local Dáil Deputy, Senator and local representatives to voice your concern. Do not delay, you must act this weekend. Go to their clinics, telephone them send a letter or an email.
Express your concerns in a quiet and dignified manner, that way they will listen. Tell them how austerity has affected you and your family’s lives.
Show them how you will be affected if you have lose a benefit or have to make new payments.
Remember everything is still on the table and there is still time to influence the outcome of the Budget process. Please pass this message to your friends, members of your groups and any other contacts you have.
NOW IS THE TIME TO MAKE SURE THE VOICE OF OLDER PEOPLE IS HEARD & HEEDED
