What does everyone make of the proposed tax credits cut? I’m split on opinion. I think it’s really really unfair on the genuine hard working parents that are out there, working for their family and doing the best they can. But then you read about these families with 8 kids where one of them works 10 hours a week and tax credits massively boosts their income to over the £26k limit It’s those who are taking the piss and tarring hard working responsible families.
That’s the trouble, there are a hand full of super-breeders on £26k + in benefits that get around the benefits cap because they work the minimum amount of hours, compared to the millions and millions of hard working families who don’t have more children because they can’t afford it. Why should they be penalised??
The government ought to scrap this tax credits cut, look more into cutting child benefit after 2/3 kids and providing more free child care for WORKING parents, not just for all 2 and 3 year olds so that we have to pay for a child to attend nursery while their parents sit around on their bums all day. I truly believe there are hard working people, and those wanting to find work and generations who live off the state with no intention of working.
