SAO PAULO – Given the difficulties of the government in cutting costs to accommodate the Citizen Income and speculation about the extension of the public calamity decree, the president of the Chamber of Deputies, Rodrido Maia (DEM-RJ), said this Saturday (17) that in under no circumstances will the House discuss the extension of the calamity or the War Budget.
“The problem is not in extending cats, but in the clear principle that the pandemic and the structure that was built to cope with it has a date to end, on December 31, 2020, and that any change will have an impact on the indicators economic conditions that will affect the lives of Brazilians much more than the extension of one or two months of assistance ”, he said in a videoconference with investors, organized by XP Investimentos.
Maia’s speech is in line with what Minister Paulo Guedes defended, also on XP Investimentos’ live, on Friday (16).
In the current state of calamity, approved in March and ending on December 31, 2020, the government is not required to observe the primary result target. The device served for the Congress to approve the PEC of the War Budget, which allows to break the so-called golden rule.
According to the mayor, today there is confusion about the spending ceiling and its non-compliance as a way to create a new minimum income program, such as the Citizen Income.
“Our problem is not in finding revenue, but organizing expenses. There are public policies that are poorly allocated, salary allowances, defense insurance … There are 17 or 18 items where we can find the R $ 30 billion to complete what is necessary to build a new program [de renda]”, said.
According to Maia, it is the role of politicians to find solutions within the rule of spending to create an income program. “The policy needs to understand that the representatives were elected to build solutions. If the solutions were simple, there was no need for representatives. They exist to face difficult moments like these, ”he said.
