My argument today is that Ireland should not introduce the water charges. The domestic water charges billing will commence in January 2015 with the first bills expected in April 2015 and thereafter will be issued quarterly. The metered unit rates are €2.44 per thousand litres for one service and €4.88 for both services. I do not believe the water charges are a good idea because ireland is on the way out of recesssion and people do not have the money to keep paying these taxes as new taxes are being introduced every month and the previous taxes are being raised constantluy meaning that the people of ireland are continuing to lose money. The government expect people to keep going out and buying goods and also expect them to pay their taxes aswell, both cannot be done. People are losing their jobs and do not have a fixed amount of income apart from the doll or jobseekers benefit . The government are asking the irish people to keep on giving while the governement employees paychecks are through the roof and are getting no deductions any time soon. I strongly disagree and believe the irish people should not have to keep paying these ridicolous taxes out of their own pockets . The only way to get income into the economy is if you let people go and buy goods in the shops instead of high taxes , this will create more jobs meaning that economy will grow and taxes will be deducted and the conterversy between the people and the government will reduce.
