Clash on Citizenship Income between the 5 Star Movement, the League and the Government. While the executive informs that the tax decree provides for the refinancing of the citizen’s income with 200 million for 2021, the controversies between the Lega, M5S and the government are ignited. During the Council of Ministers Giancarlo Giorgetti (Lega), Renato Brunetta (Fi) and Elena Bonetti (Iv), would in fact have asked to deeply modify the text, the historical workhorse of the M5s. The grillino minister Stefano Patuanelli would have defended the measure with the sword, finding the support of the minister dem Andrea Orlando but also of the premier Mario Draghi. The prime minister, called to mediate, said he was in favor of the funds until 31 December 2021 (approved by the CDM) but ready to change something first in the budget law. Immediate for the reaction of the 5-star leader Giuseppe Conte. Hands off Citizenship Income, he said in a post where he invites Salvini and Meloni, as well as those who think like them in the government, to do the same. And to stop assaulting an instrument of civilization. We will not allow it.
Conte’s words also come in response to the attacks by the two leaders of the Lega and Fdi. Salvini, who said he was satisfied with the Tax Decree, reiterated the need to rethink the measure of the RD: One thing on which we will have to intervene next year is the issue of citizenship income, because to guarantee it to those who cannot work sacrosanctly, disabled, disabled, people in difficulty. The problem is that abuses and thefts are daily, so giving billions of euros to those who perhaps arrive from abroad and make a leap to Italy and return home, maintained at the expense of the Italians, is not possible.
On the other hand, Giorgia Meloni’s words are harsher who said: The government says everything is fine, but no one says we have lost 1 million jobs, for example. The wealth is made by companies and workers, the state at most redistributes wealth … The solution is not the citizenship income that state methadone.
