Ministers Hypocrisy and Betrayal

Minister Burton really gives new meaning to the phrase 'turncoat'. A real Fox running with the Hounds. There are countless videos on the internet of Joan Burton defending the poor, including those on Social Welfare. Now she is trying to brainwash the nation that everyone on welfare is a potential fraudster, proven by her 'Crystal Ball' statement on how much her department will save in the future. My God!, is there no integrity to found in any of the government parties?, and will the poor always be sacrificed in order to mask the true cause of the debt problem this nation is suffering?

Minister Rabbittes comment at the end of RTE's report on the statement was no less disgusting, with him trying to link austerity with alledged fraudsters. He also needs reminding that it is the banks that have caused the problem, not the 3% (max) of people alleged to be defrauding the system.
How much more of this nonsense can the people of Ireland endure before they break?
