This Monday, January 30, the leader of the rebellious deputies Mathilde Panot unveiled the “counter-project” for LFI pension reform.
POLITICS – For her, ” another reform of retreats is possible in this country “. This is what hammered this Monday, January 30, the leader of the rebellious deputies Mathilde Panotherself elected in the Val-de-Marne. On the eve of the second big day of mobilization social against flagship project of Macron’s second five-year term, “on will be on some sort of popular censure motion “, she further advanced in front of the press, detailing the main lines of LFI’s ambitions for the text.
And this after calling for “ a popular no-confidence motion ” in the street this Tuesday, while insisting on the ” counter-project of his group, which has a starting age of 60 as its backbone. ” The more people there are in the street, the more our amendments are read with interest, with curiosity, even with fear. In all three cases we take “, abounded Hadrian ClouetLFI deputy for Haute-Garonne.
In committee in the Assembly this week and in the hemicycle from next week, their group offers a full pension with 40 annual contributions, against 43 projected in the long term by the government, and a legal retirement age which would be reduced from 62 to 60 years. The time spent at the RSA would also be counted in the calculation of the number of terms.
55 billion to find to make this reform
Because for the time being, the reform of the executive is considered ” unfair », « financially uselesse” and “ anti-feminist » by the Insoumis. In a booklet of around forty pages, half of which is devoted to this criticism, the LFI deputies have therefore outlined their proposals.
The group pleads for a minimum pension of 1,600 euros net for full careers, i.e. at the level of the Smic that LFI wishes to bring into force. The minimum old age would also be increased to 1,128 euros and would be paid automatically. The rebellious still recommend removing the principle of the discount on pensions.
They amount to 55 billion euros, for the year 2027, the cost linked to a legal age reduced to 60 years, and the revaluation of pensions and the minimum old age. An envelope that they wish to find in the reduction of certain ” social niches “, and especially ” the relief of contributions on wages above 2.5 Smic “.
Other proposed financing solutions: a “ 10% dividend contributions”, and a filling of the coffers by wage increases and, by domino effect, unemployment benefits. So many arguments which should animate the debates in the National Assembly then in the Senate in the coming weeks, in addition to perhaps being taken up in the street by the demonstrators.
