The 2011 budget is the toughest in a four-year austerity plan that aims to save 15 billion euros -- nearly 10 percent of the country's annual economic output -- and get the worst budget deficit in the region back within EU limits by 2015 at the latest.Cowen will push through some four billion euros in spending cuts next year, with social welfare benefits, public pensions and capital projects all set for the chop."I don't want to think about it," said John-Joe Feeney, a 41-year-old out of work carpenter in Dublin's poor inner city."I just know they (the government) are going to hurt the people who have nothing, like me, my wife and kids and leave the fat cats alone. It's not worth thinking about."Tax adjustments will make up another two billion euros with roughly half of the additional revenues coming from lowering income tax bands and tweaking tax credits, allowing the government to target the 45% of Irish adults, on lower incomes, who did not previously pay income tax.
