Tax cuts?


- Tax breaks for companies who employ new staff.
- Freeze council tax for two years.
- Taking family homes out of inheritance tax.

DC said that tax breaks for companies would be funded by keeping people out of Jobseekers Allowance. Does this make any sense? Yes, this may put some people into work but tBg doesn't see this as a tax cut, its just moving money from one place to another. A tax cut would be slashing income tax or VAT and putting money in peoples pockets, thus allowing higher spending by the consumer - this stimulates the econamy and leads to higher revenue for the exchequer.

Has DC and Osborne forgot how a tax cut works?
