There is a lot of mistruths about expenses for politicans.
The previous administration changed the system for expences following the furore over expenses. Depending on the distance from Dail Eireann they receive a unvouched expenses depending on attendance.
Otger expenses can be vouched or unvouched depending on politicans wishes, and pay for office expenses,including rent, post and packaging, some advertising,and anassistant.
I understand peoples annoyance over the level of expenses, but mos jobs would pay for travel andout of pocket expenses if neccessary in the performanceof the job.
I strongly believe we have to be careful about reducing the expenses (and the politicans could display alltheir expenses and explanation of them). If we reduce expenses to zero, politicans will onlybe a career for therich.
