On Tuesday, I voted against the Government’s Health and Social Care Levy, which will raise National Insurance by 1.25% for working families and businesses. I believe this will place an enormous burden on hard working people in Enfield Southgate.
This is a tax rise that means a landlord renting out dozens of properties in Enfield wouldn’t pay a penny more, but their tenants working full time jobs would.
I believe those with the broadest shoulders should contribute more. Under a Labour government, we would actually tackle the social care crisis, rather than rush through a manifesto-breaking, unfair tax on jobs.
