The government majority splits on the refinancing of citizenship income. The League gets sideways in the council of ministers, this time with the support of two other parties that support the Draghi executive, namely Forza Italia and Italia Viva. Reason for the dispute for the 200 million euros in 2021 provided for in the tax decree for the refinancing of citizenship income.
A measure very dear to the Five Stars, which however, according to sources from the Carroccio, “was financed by raising resources for emergency income (90 million), early access to retirement for tiring and heavy work (30 million), the retirement of early workers (40 million) and parental leave (30 million) “. Ministers Giorgetti, Brunetta and Bonetti expressed their doubts on the sustainability of the measure, in particular in relation to the fact that there would be no expected effect on work. For this reason, the three majority parties would have asked to re-discuss the issue in the budget law. Draghi would have assured that the measure will be revised during the maneuver, working in particular on active policies. “Mocking to use the money of those who have worked hard for a similar measure”, would have thundered the Northern League minister Giorgetti.
The M5s leader Giuseppe Conte is not there and on social media writes: “Hands off the Citizenship Income”, inviting “Salvini and Meloni, as well as those who think like them to the Government, to do the same. And to stop attacking an instrument of civilization. We will not allow it ”. Meanwhile, with the tax bill, among other measures, the eco-bonus fund for the purchase of low-emission vehicles was financed for 2021 with 100 million euros.
