Poland utilized 13.4%
of funds allocated for her by the European Union in 2009.
I don't have the data for the last year, but let's assume that a miracle happened and that
miracles will happen on a regular basis, so Poland will increase her ability to absorb EU funds
from 13.4% to 50... no, let our imaginaton roam free
That would mean that in 2014-2020 we will receive 0.6*80 = 48 billion Euro
Poland's contribution is around 2 billion a year, no more.
Poland's contribution in 2011 is, in fact, 15.7 billion PLN, which equals about 4 billion euro.
It is likely to increase slighly in the coming years, so the Polish contribution to the EU budget
in years 2014-2020 will be 7*4 = 28 billion
euro (and it is unconditional contribution, as opposed
to EU funds, which can be granted only under certain conditions and limitations.)
So, 48 - 28 equals 20 billion euro, in 7 years
(2014-2020). That gives a sum of about 2.85 billion
euro a year or, if you will, 75 euro per capita a year
, which amounts to about 20 eurocents
a day per capita, every year from 2014 to 2020. YAY!
Now... don't get me wrong... I am very grateful for the 20 eurocents a day
that European Union
floods me with every day of my life. Thank you very much, EU. However, when some idiot tells
me that the well being of my family and my country depends on those 20 eurocents, then I can
only smile and offer my sad sympathy for the retard.75 euro a year per capita
- that's what it is ladies and gentlemen, and more I hear about how Poland
depends on that money, and how we live on generous EU handouts, the more I want to give back
my 75 euro and tell the idiots to finally shut the f*ck up :-)
Especially that the ridiculously high tax rates which are a consequence of Poland's EU membership,
like the VAT tax rates for example, cost me way more than 20 eurocents a day.
Actually, I have a great idea... but have to go now - will tell you about it later.
