"New resources will be necessary for the financing of the welfare state. Green tax instruments are a possibility, but they are ambiguous: This type of tax will eventually be extinguished.
But the possibilities of financial levies at European level must be seriously examined and for the first time the large countries in the union are open to that."
This is, of course, only an admission that our model of social democracy is too expensive and that the fuckers want to soak us for yet more cash—the trouble is that they could tax us at 99% and still they would need more.
The Welfare State is unsustainable, socially destructive and incredibly wasteful: we need to find other solutions.
