Article 17.2 of the Irish Constitution relating to money messages is currently being misused by the current Fine Gael lead government. They have prevented upwards of 50+ bills from the opposition TDs throughout this Dáil using money messages.

I believe that this is an affront on our democracy. Anyone who genuinely believes in parliamentary democracy cannot believe that this is a fair use of money messages or is in any way democratic. It does not matter what your politics are, if you believe in representative democracy we need to change this.

I would like to alter and re-define in a fitting way article 17.2 to clarify when money messages should be used as well as setting a minimum value that needs to potentially be breached (cost >=250K for example)

This should be a discussion for the Dáil as what needs to be changed and to plan for the next referendum to put it before the Irish people to decide.

If you do sign and believe in helping bring this change I would also ask you to reach out to your local TDs and to help spread the word. 

Go raibh maith agaibh!
