Where's the investment coming from? The State doesn't have the means to provide 1.2 million jobs in small towns and depressed rural areas. The money can only come from Polska A - who are sick to death of subsidising these areas through KRUS and other things as it stands.
a housing fund into which would be channelled one-half of the taxes from housing construction
Why? Housing isn't terribly expensive compared to salaries. And with taxes on construction, what do you think is going to happen? That's right - less construction.
50% tax write-off for each additional child.
Where's the money coming from? Such policies will only anger the tax-paying electorate, especially the childless. They're not going to support any measures which punish them for being childless - and these people are the ones who have the power to decide elections.
Child allowances would begin at conception, and there should be discounts on textbooks.
Again - all totally unfunded. Discounts for textbooks can only be achieved in two ways - the imposition of set text books (thus harming the publishing industry) or by robbing other areas of the desperately underfunded Education budget.
A family coupon for poorest families would provide up to 300 zł towards nursery and preschool costs
But it's totally illogical - the poorest families aren't working, so why do they need nurseries?
the elderly coulod chosoe between OFE and ZUS
Not going to happen. There's not enough money in ZUS to give people the choice of opting out.
the 60 and 65 retirement age would be rerstored but people could work until 67 if they wanted to.
A total disaster - the population is aging and ZUS doesn't have enough in the pot to pay out pensions at that age. So - people might get to retire earlier, but they'd face the choice of a low pension or higher (which already stand at 39%) contributions.
The National Health Fund would be liqudiated
What would it be replaced with?
and the 8+4 format in education would be restored
A populist move which bears no relation to reality - 6+3+3 is shown to have raised standards. And again - where's the money coming from? The education ministry is poor enough as it is.
a full curriculum in history, Polish and religion would be restored and school doctors would be reinstated.
School doctors? Where's the money coming from? Schools need facilities and equipment, not random rubbish doctors who couldn't make it in proper medicine.
The culture ministry should .return to a policy of promoting our national heritage in the best sense of the word rather than financing controversial projects.
So more POLSKA POLSKA rubbish that no-one wants to see.
Banks and chain-retailers should be taxed.
They're taxed already. Higher taxes means higher prices for consumers, which means higher taxes to pay for increased benefits to them.
There should be stiffer openalties for violent crime and corruption including confiscation of property..
Perhaps about the only reasonable thing in the whole thing.
This is a foretaste of what is in store once the corrupt Tusk clique lands on the trash heap of history.
Except it won't happen. Poles are taxed enough - and simply won't vote in a hideously socialist Government that will be forced to dramatically increase taxation to pay for all of this.
testing though ow he proposes to fund all that?
Indeed, how will all of this be funded? Proposals are one thing, but it needs to be funded.
I've just read his proposals, and some of them are a complete disaster for business.
For instance, Kaczynski proposes that every single business in Poland will be subject to VAT. That's almost certainly going to drive small businesspeople underground - they won't be able to compete if they have to suddenly slap on 23% on top of their existing prices.
And his proposals to abolish the Matura are - well - insane.
Funnily enough, it seems that Polonius quoted directly from Gazeta Wyborcza, but left out some bits.
