The morning talk shows have reviewed today's headlines and are analyzing the measures that will take effect -- it's a tsunami of facts and figures making my head spin (especially when 3 people are all talking at the same time).
It seems, for example, that Greek families will be taxed per child about 200 Euros annually -- some of the same people whose salaries are being slashed and living in a country of vast unemployment/loss of health benefits. A woman member of Parliament and mother from Thessaloniki rose yesterday to ask which children families are supposed to get rid of. Good question!
And that's just the tip of the mushrooming iceburg of suffering that is setting real people way back under the guise of necessary economic reform. When and how will it end?
