What is the point of a party with no plan? – asks the TD
Fine Gael TD for Cork South West, Jim Daly said today’s growth figures show the recovery is gaining momentum five years on from Fianna Fáil leading us into a bailout. GDP growth is at 7%, while GNP grew by 5.6% according to the latest figures from the CSO Quarterly National Accounts.
“When we came into government we rejected Fianna Fáil’s plans for more tax increases. That’s has led to strong job creation which is driving economic growth.
“Over 135,000 jobs have been created since the launch of the Action Plan for Jobs in 2012. Fianna Fáil have no jobs plan after wasting four and a half years in opposition. Fianna Fáil are still a high tax, high spend party and opposed our tax cuts for two years in a row.
“Fine Gael has a long term plan to keep the recovery going. What about Fianna Fáil?” he said.
