There's nothing in Budget 2021 for rural middle Ireland.
That's according to Roscommon Galway TD Michael Fitzmaurice.
The Glinsk man says, yet again, it's the same people, who already pay the most in tax, who are going to be hardest hit.
Meanwhile, increases in petrol prices aimed at motorists with high polluting cars have been dismissed as a tax grab by the AA.
However the organisation says there is some merit to the changes in the VRT based on emissions.
Conor Faughnan from the AA doesn't believe fuel price hikes will have the desired impact.
