Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

The CSG is the tax that hurts the most the lower salaries. It's a disguised income tax. I don't see that Sego is going to abolish it for just that class, just "redistribute" it.

the proposed Segolian 5% increase on pensions for the category "low pensions" is an insult to that category. It gives them 20€ more a month !!! Bayrou proposes 90% of the smic (minimum wage). So they don't have to queue at 80 for charity. This problem which is a remnant of the prewar generation was solved in Sweden in the sixties through the ATP reform there. It's a shame that in this country (France) elderly and widows that have been working all their lives still earn 300-600€ a month.

Everybody has an ecologic fiscality on its program since they signed the "Hulot pact". Except Lepen of course and the far left.
