“We use the funds of the citizenship income to fight the expensive bills,” the proposal of the League to Draghi

The League this morning met Prime Minister Mario Draghi at Palazzo Chigi to take stock of the budget law. The delegation was made up of Giancarlo Giorgetti and by the group leaders of the Chamber and Senate, Riccardo Molinari e Maximilian Romeo. On this occasion, the Lega «expressed to the Prime Minister Mario Draghi strong concern for the expensive bills, which risks reducing the benefits of the tax cut, suggesting to intervene by recovering resources from the reform of the citizen’s income ». The party led by Matteo Salvini, after theendorsement of the leader of Forza Italia Silvio Berlusconi to citizenship income, he does not want to cancel the subsidy but to keep it only for some “well-specified categories”. And that’s not all: the League also asked to intervene to help some sectors such as the automotive sector “without forgetting the need to allocate as many resources as possible to people with disabilities who have particularly suffered the consequences of the crisis Covid“. Finally, the Northern League heads of delegation asked for the scrapping of the tax bills, less bureaucracy and strengthening of the flat tax to the 15 percent «Raising her to 100 thousand euros».

A maneuver that, however, started amidst tensions. On the one hand the rejection unions, on the other hand the rain of amendments presented by parliamentarians. CGIL, CISL and UIL rejected the agreement between parties and government on taxes: they want them 8 billion are used for employees and pensions.
