Marine Le Pen proposed this Monday afternoon to the State to “return half” of the surplus revenue collected by VAT due to inflation, in particular through a tax credit system, in an interview at 8 p.m. on TF1.
“The more inflation there is, the more money the State earns,” argued the president of the RN group in the National Assembly, pointing out an “unacceptable situation” in which “the State (gets richer) by impoverishing taxpayers.”
“30 billion surplus”
“I believe that of the 30 billion (euro) surplus VAT that the State collected this year and last year, the State must return a part to the French, that is, 8.5 billion, that is, what is left when he has fulfilled his budgetary obligations,” developed who now claims to be the “natural candidate” of the RN for the presidential elections.
Marine Le Pen’s entourage then explained to AFP that it could be a tax credit of 500 euros for a family with two children or 250 euros for a retired couple.
Selling at a loss, “very bad idea”
Given the persistence of inflation, the Government has withdrawn the letter of selling fuel at a loss since “the beginning of December.” Elisabeth Borne announced the measure on Saturday, lifting an old taboo, banned in France since 1963.
“It is a very bad idea,” denounced Marine Le Pen, who assures that thousands of “independent, small service stations, which supply the rural areas of our country in particular, will close.” According to her, the solution is to “lower VAT.”
