After the State accounts for 2021 and 2022, the National embly on Tuesday rejected those of Social Security for 2022 due to a coalition of oppositions, a vote which will however have no great practical consequence.
By 134 votes against 115, the deputies refused to give “discharge” to the government for the execution of this budget. The right-wing dominated Senate must now decide.
The Minister of Health, François Braun, defended in vain “a responsible trajectory”while his colleague in Public Accounts, Gabriel Attal, called on the opposition not to ” sweep “ a text “automatically”. From RN to LFI, the deputies have pinned a budget “insincere”having imposed ” austerity “. The elected LRs distinguished themselves by deploring an insufficient “mastery” accounts.
The Renaissance group deplored a “media stunt” opposition, which “will not change anything in the daily life of the French”.
“We will challenge line by line each of the texts of law which touches on a hair of our Social Security and our pensions”, promised the rebellious David Guiraud, on the evening of the 14th day of mobilization against the pension reform.
On Monday, the embly had rejected under the same conditions the bills for the regulation of the State budget for 2021 and 2022. This approval of past budgets was previously a simple accounting formality, but it has turned into a headache. in the new configuration of the embly, without an absolute majority since last June.
On August 3, the deputies rejected the 2021 settlement bill for the first time, which had not happened since 1833.
