“I refuse to accept retirement at 65”
On the contrary, "my objective is to make life easier for the French people", she assured, asking the government if it is "ready to compromise" and to say "how far it is ready to amend his project to take into account the vote of the French" in the legislative elections.
If she welcomed the upcoming revaluation of retirement pensions by 4% or even the tariff shield on energy prices, Marine Le Pen pointed to the fact that "the government gives the feeling of giving gifts" while that in reality it does not cover the losses recorded in the last five years and those which will be recorded there because of inflation”.
She also opposes the government's 65-year retirement plan.
“I will not budge, I refuse to accept retirement at 65, I would only accept our proposal which allows people to leave between 60 and 62 with between 40 and 42 annuities depending on the age at which they entered the system,” she said.
A reduction in VAT
She also criticized the plan to pay aid to "big rollers".
If she is in favor of a reduction in fuel taxation to reduce the cost at the pump, the idea of compensation offered to employees forced to take their car is “a gas plant”.
“Should a bailiff come to read the odometers?
“, she asks.
"The only effective, rapid, immediate measure that benefits everyone is the reduction of VAT from 20% to 5.5%" on energy and fuel prices, she said. defended again.
