François Bayrou urges government to consider targeted tax hike

François Bayrou Calls for Tax Increases to Address Economic Challenges in France”.

On Monday, François Bayrou called for discussions between the government and parliamentarians regarding a targeted increase in taxes, a demand that his party, MoDem, has been making for several years. Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire has categorically refused this proposal. Bayrou emphasized the importance of implementing rebalancing measures that target those with the most means, particularly those who have been impacted by the crisis, while also maintaining France’s appeal to investors.

When questioned about the possibility of taxing companies with “super profits” or “super dividends,” Bayrou highlighted that the MoDem had already proposed similar measures in previous budgetary years. He argued that blaming the unemployed for unemployment is misguided and suggested that a different approach to reforming unemployment insurance is necessary.

Bayrou expressed his opposition to a new reform of unemployment insurance that aims to reduce the duration of compensation, as proposed by the government. He emphasized the need for a more comprehensive approach to addressing economic challenges in France and urged policymakers to explore alternative solutions. In summary, François Bayrou’s call for discussions on tax hikes and his opposition to proposed reforms of unemployment insurance reflect the MoDem’s ongoing efforts to address economic challenges in France.
