[font=Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Today in our Headquarters in Dublin's Docklands we launched our economic plan for the next five years that centres around creating a strong economy for a decent society. Our tax plan is focussed on low and middle income families -the families that most need a break.[/font]

[font=Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Tánaiste Joan Burton, Ministers Brendan Howlin, Alex White and Deputy Nolan launched our plan in which we will invest €3 in services for families and communities for every €1 reduction in tax - only Labour will invest in the services that families and communities need.[/font]


[font=Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][font=Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Speaking at the launch Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, Brendan Howlin spoke about how we will "deploy €11.2bn over the next five years split on a three to one ratio between public services and tax reductions. €8.4bn (8.368) and €2.9bn. (2.866).That’s €3bn for our health services, €2bn for education and €1.7bn for Social protection increases like the old age pension."[/font][/font]
[font=Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Minister Alex White spoke about how Labour can "deliver public services and infrastructure capable of giving our children a society and economy fit for the 21st century and beyond."[/font]


[font=Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][font=Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Closing the launch Tánaiste Joan Burton spoke about cleaning up Fianna Fáil's mess for the past five years " There was nothing fair about Fianna Fail’s reckless economic management or about the devastating effects this had on people’s lives. Labour was elected to government to fix the problems – in a fair way.We’ve done our utmost to do that.[/font]

[font=Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][font=Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][font=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif] [/font]

[font=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif]Labour will abolish Universal Social Charge on all incomes up to €72,000 and clawback the benefit from those earning over €100,000.[/font][/font]
[/font]

[font=Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][font=Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][font=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif]
The party launched its economic plan confirming it will increase the bank levy, introduce a sugar tax and increase excise duties on tobacco.[/font]
[/font]
[/font]

[font=Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][font=Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][font=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif]
USC will be abolished on the first € 72,000 of income over the next five years.
Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform Brendan Howlin said the benefit will be frozen on incomes between that level and €100,000.[/font]
[/font]
[/font]

[font=Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][font=Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][font=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif]
He said: “The USC is an onerous tax on people on low to middle income earners. It is a burden on workers.”
The party said those on € 25,000 will benefit by € 44 a year, those on € 50,000 will benefit by € 44 a year while those on €120,000 will pay the same tax.[/font]
[/font]
[/font]

[font=Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][font=Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][font=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif]
Tánaiste Joan Burton said this was an example of the party protecting low and middle income earners.
She said: “That is progressive. That is fair. We’ll ensure that they will be gradually freed of this penal tax.
“At the same time we’ll ensure the wealthiest in society continue to pay for their fair share. That will ensure resources are available for investment in essential services such as schools, childcare and healthcare.”[/font]
[/font]
[/font]

[font=Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][font=Roboto, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][font=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif]
The party is also proposing additional relief at low and middle income working people earning between €18,305 and €36,608.[/font]

Labour will never be allowed to forget that Tesco advert, it will stick with them like a badge of dishonor.

Not that people like Pat Rabbitte will care, retiring with a 2 million pension

Look at the positives, the greens will have someone to argue with about TV coverage!
