Cutting benefits from others may not make you much happier. Instead why don't you fight to acquire some new rights ? (oh but this is a little more difficult than just being cynical of course.)

You may have noticed that EPO budget comes mainly from States contributions, at a time where deficits run high and people in Europe are more and more taxed.

I understand that as a privileged one you want to defend your privileges, however I do believe that the burden should be beard by all and some minor sacrifices has to be made to avoid the collapse of the whole system. Fighting to get more money from taxpayers when getting already a lot seems a little bit cynical too.
