Cape Town - In response to Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan's invitation for South Africans to share what they would like to see in the budget, Fin24 user Steven Gildenhuys suggests that maybe it should be called 'prayers' instead of pointers for Pravin.

He writes:

We need to create jobs and it would also be good if we could get some of the more affluent people in this country to share some of their good fortune. In the meantime we also have the middle class, who are being taxed to the hilt and literally cannot part with any more money. The social grant system is also abused by many who are not entitled to grants as they already have work.
