Tax credit benefit cuts

Have your say

Government policies have driven down wages to the point where people with families with at least one member working full time can no longer sustain an acceptable lifestyle, paying for food, shelter and clothing, so this is topped up by government handouts.

This government now wants to cut this benefit, although they promised in their election pledge that they wouldn’t do so, whilst purporting to increase wages generally several years in the future.

They have surely got this the wrong way round.

What are families forced below the povety line suposed to do until their wages eventually catch up to the Government’s promises?

And why are these promises more likely to be kept than the ones made before the election not to cut these benefits?
