Disgusted with what....?

The changes are to the threshold at which they start to taper off and to the number of children one can claim child benefit for. Both those things seem logical and when you take into account the increases to tax free personal allowances both achieved and planned for the future, the impact of the reduction in this kind of benefit, when compared with pre-2010, is questionable.

Surely it is better to have an economy where the Government takes less tax off you in the first place rather than provide handouts. Just because the tax cuts happened first (quite rightly) doesn't mean that we can view the cuts to these benefits in isolation.
