Over the past two years, thousands of persons have lost their jobs leaving their families struggling on the breadline. The Rowley regime claims to have spent over 5 Billion taxpayer dollars in Covid-19 relief, yet little of these monies have reached those in need.
Rowley’s empty economic promises have created a nation of empty cupboards and empty stomachs.
Under my administration, we removed VAT from over seven thousand food items and our Government still operated comfortably. The Government can afford to give the people of Trinidad and Tobago a Merry Christmas by at least removing the VAT on all food items.
I plead with Keith Rowley to spare a thought for those going hungry in our nation and implement this policy which will help people to afford to feed their families this Christmas.
