On the one hand, the government talks about targeted measures, on the other when it comes to giving away taxes to big businessmen

Η κυβΕρνηση απ&tau ;η μια μιλα για στοχευμενα μετρα, &alpha ;πό την Αλλη όταν πρόκειται να χαρΙσ ει φoρους σε μεγαλοεπιχειρημα τiες

By Alexia Kafetzis

The measures announced by the government are absolutely necessary but not sufficient at all. Not at all sufficient to deal with the enormous economic pressure that society, households, workers, small and medium enterprises are under. The measures cannot cover the decline in the purchasing power of wages, nor the new increases in electricity.

AKEL claims more drastic and substantial measures to support society, but AKEL does not only ask. We indicate, at the same time, where resources can be drawn to finance a large social package, a real social shield against precision. Here and now to proceed with the taxation of the super profits of banks and large energy companies that pile record profits on the backs of society and the economy. We call on the government to finally say what its position is.

The Christodoulidis government, however, is moving in the opposite direction. On the one hand, he talks about targeted measures, on the other hand, when it comes to giving away taxes to big businessmen, he forgets the targeting and gives away millions of euros from state coffers. With what logic did he decide to give the 350 euro fee to large companies, many of which record huge profits, instead of listening to AKEL's proposal for a graduated fee. With our proposal, we exempt the vast majority of small and medium-sized businesses from the fee and introduce a tiered fee for large businesses. In this way, the state's finances would save 20 million euros.

The Christodoulidis government will not be able to take the measures that society needs, while following the trodden by its predecessors and refuses to touch the big financial interests.
