Meloni: “Citizenship income is a measure that discourages work and favors black work”
Giorgia Meloni presented the amendments to Brothers of Italy, about 800, to the budget maneuver. Once again, at the opening, the leader of the only opposition party denounces the government’s “intolerable” attitude towards Parliament, which had the opportunity to see the text of the law only a few days after its approval. “I am struck by the absolute silence of the press towards this behavior of the government towards parliament, which is now as if it did not exist” denounces the Melons.
At the same time it should be noted that if fdi presented 785 amendments, the majority presented 6290, an unequivocal sign of the lack of cohesion and perhaps even of confidence in a maneuver that according to Meloni would be “without any vision”. The number of amendments in fact, it would be proof that the parties that are part of the majority play more roles and that they would not be so convinced of the merits of the new budget law of the Draghi government. “There was certainly no need for the genius of Dragons to give birth to such a disappointing maneuver ”, says the leader of fdi. The major fault of this maneuver would be inherent in the lack of those economic policy measures that can create the conditions for lasting growth, which is quite another thing than the rebound in GDP this year, which “is physiological after the fourth worst decline in the GDP recorded in 2020, after the three of the war period “.
The first criticism is that Brothers of Italy puts on the merits of the law is that the 8 billion euro of tax cuts are small compared to the amount of annual state revenues (about 540 billion) and that above all they do not touch what should be the priority for Fratelli d ‘Italy, namely the cutting of the tax wedge. The approximately 800 amendments of the party move along two main lines: Healthcare, with the fight against Covid and support for economic growth and businesses. As regards healthcare, Fratelli d’Italia once again raises the problem of strengthening public transport, considered as one of the first clusters in the spread of the infection. And it does so by proposing a budget of 200 million euros.
As for the vaccination campaign, the opposition party makes a rather disruptive proposal, probably destined to cause discussion. 1 billion euros to be allocated to any compensation for adverse reactions to the vaccine, which can cause serious and permanent disability. Perhaps in this way, according to the proponents, the diffidence and fear that perhaps many who do not want to get vaccinated have towards the new anti-covid serums could be overcome. “The state needs to assume its responsibilities. And this does not mean being no vax but asking questions, which is the task of a serious and responsible opposition, such as the price at which the state would have paid the vaccines, which is still classified, without understanding why “
For the school, another very hot topic on the covid front, Fdi instead proposes to adopt the Marche model for all of Italy, ie the allocation of resources to equip schools with controlled mechanical ventilation for ventilation. As regards the support to companies, fdi proposes a super deduction of the cost of labor and IRES in the event of new hires. The elimination of IRAP for self-employed persons and partnerships and the extension of the flat-rate regime to subjects with revenues of up to 100,000 euros is also proposed.
For what concern citizenship income a measure that for some time Fratelli d’Italia has been proposing to abolish, because as reiterated by Meloni “It is a measure that discourages work and favors black work.” The introduction of the solidarity allowance is proposed, a measure that intends to support those families with at least one member over sixty, minors and disabled people, therefore people who are not able to work, clearly limited to families in economic difficulty.
Finally, a chapter dedicated to the question of folders cannot be missing, much discussed and which in the end gave birth to a mini extension of 9 days. Giorgia Meloni reiterates that this fact is unacceptable “because if the state of emergency is extended, this must apply to everyone and therefore also to businesses and households, which perhaps due to closures and economic crisis have not been able to meet the debts with the tax authorities “and therefore an ad hoc amendment provides for a tolerance until February 1, 2022 for the payment of bills and debts with the tax authorities.
