PNP General Secretary, Julian Robinson, is alleging that there’s evidence that the JLP-administration’s 1-point-5 income tax break plan has hurt more Jamaicans than those it has assisted.

Mr. Robinson was addressing a media conference on the UWI Mona Campus on the weekend shortly after PNP President Dr. Peter Phillips spoke to the party’s caretakers and candidates doing a private meeting.

    The 1.5 is hurting the PNP more than the people who are receiving the money and spending it on hiring labour from the gardeners, plumbers, various vendors, helpers, carpenters, builders, welders, property tax, extra classes for their children, etc & etc. Like the SOEs, the 1.5 is another NIGHTMARE for comrades. Comrades are socialists & don’t know how money & economies work hence their GRIPING EVERYDAY ABOUT THE 1.5.
