This afternoon, the budget of the social security is voted in the National Assembly.
This text plans 9.6 billion savings: around 40 Socialist deputies, called “the rebellious” or “the opponents” abstained, according to the sources of AFP. Among these opponents we count now the ecologists who joined this group. Last week, the government showed unity. And, this situation was anticipated by the Minister of health Marisol Touraine who says that “the rebellious should approach this vote “with responsibility”. We can say that the socialist opponents did not really listen to the Minister. Their abstention proves well that they disagree: they oppose in this kind of economy for 2015, which concerns family, more, exactly the family allowances.
