Is David Cameron right to target public sector workers and the poor with cuts?
Do you think its right for David Cameron to go after the public sector workers and people on benefits? Shouldn't he go after the rich if he really wants to reduce our national debt like the bankers and celebrities who actually have the money to pay towards the debt? Or his he using the cuts as an excuse to pick on the poorest in society?

Do the math. Where are enormous amounts of money being spent? Pensions, entitlements, health care,.... Greece et al have proven that a rampant dependency culture cannot be sustained. As Thatcher said, "Socialism is fine until other peoples' money runs out."

No I think hes targeting society as a whole, although the emphasis will be on the rich (or richer) as anyone whose even a slightlest bit up to date with the news knows the debt problem in this country is a major issue and is far worse than anticipated, so everyones going to suffer to help curb the extent of our debt.

The problem with the rich is that they're highly movable. Most of our tax take comes from the rich and if you increase it too much they'll move to where it's less and then the poor will have to pay more.

Its the only way he can ensure that the politicians don't pay their fair share along with the bankers who bankroll the political parties. Notice that none of their pensions are being cut back.
