Enda Kenny on the Property Tax – It’s morally unjust…

Cottage

Excerpts from Dáil Debate, Wednesday 2nd February 1994 Mr Enda Kenny TD “It is morally unjust and unfair to tax a person’s home, and by so doing grind him into the ground. Indeed in cases it could probably be unconstitutional” “It reminds me of a vampire tax in that it drives a stake through the heart of home ownership, through enthusiasm and initiative, and sucks the life blood of people who want to own their own home and better their position” “If the Government fail to appreciate the passion with which people will defend their rights to own their home and have it looking as well as it should, it is making a serious mistake”http://debates.oireachtas.ie/dail/1994/02/02/00007.asp
