The majority of rivals ideas to fund the 10 billion euros promised by Emmanuel Macron to the French modest.
Past the relief-general after the address by Emmanuel Macron, a part of the group LREM asked : "the president of the Republic has perfectly well played. It has extinguished the opposition, but it may be a Pyrrhic victory. One is exposed to a concours Lépine in the majority." With a hole for the public finances of at least 10 billion euros, the members are competing already proposals to finance the actions of Emmanuel Macron in the direction of purchasing power. At the risk of cacophony or, worse, of the division.
outside of the 3%
"We finance at least half of the economies", promises, and seeking to limit deficits, Amélie de Montchalin, first vice-president of the group LREM. The deputies macronistes are not on the same line with the Maastricht criteria. Without savings or additional revenue, the initial 2.8% forecast for the public deficit in 2019 could blithely exceed the 3% mark. With the key of the crockery broken in Brussels and the increase of the national debt.

"We can't afford to be outside of the 3%, warns mp LREM Jean-François Cesarini. Even Matteo Salvini in Italy had to return in the nails and present its own budget under the pressure of the financial markets." Most of his colleagues are more nuanced. "We must not abandon the rule of 3%, said Jean-François Mbaye. But it is necessary to be able to put in stand-by when you are in a state of economic emergency and social, the time to restore the situation." Provided you are not too angry with the european partners, whiling away the deficit for a year remains the solution is more consensual. "We will work to stay under the 3%, promises Jean-Baptiste Djebbari. But if it is temporarily, 3.1, or 3.2%, this is not a drama."
Haro on the CICE ?
"We need to ensure that public spending is brought under control," said Edouard Philippe, during the session of questions to the government. The left wing of the group LREM feared a management that is technocratic and the folder by the top-officials of Bercy. "It is better to avoid asking them to find solutions, tackle an old socialist. We risk ending up with a gas plant or a new crisis." The decrease of € 5 of the LPA and its collateral damage in public opinion in the summer of 2017 have left traces.
The idea of putting the companies contribution divides the troops. The State plans to spend 40 billion euros next year to transform the 20 billion euros of tax credit in the YEAR in reductions of loads perennial. There is a great temptation to limit or modulate the transition. "You have to go find the side of the 40 billion euros the YEAR", assumes Frédéric Barbier, a former socialist re-elected under the label of LREM in June 2017. "We can afford to skip the YEAR, or at least reduce it by half and direct it towards small and medium-sized enterprises," adds his colleague, Ludovic Mendes.

Related Modem, Bruno Fuchs is promoting an original mechanism : spread the transition out over four years, in agreement with the companies. Emmanuel Macron has not yet hinted at no increased charges of the companies, outside of the exceptional bonus that he asked them to pay their employees. "It is not necessary that we move on the YEAR, has a member of the office of the group LREM. It is necessary to give predictability to companies."
"Fair to the sausage"
The ideas come together in the group to bring the money into the coffers of the State. Close to Nicolas Hulot, Matthieu Orphan proposes five specific measures. Not to extend the removal of the housing tax to 20% of the wealthiest households, increase the corporate income tax for large companies, to plane the "niche Copé", financial transaction tax and raising the highest bracket of income tax. "We need more tax justice," he said to The Express. Some may be more involved."
Ludovic Mendes also supports a tax on financial transactions. He also wondered about the search for new fiscal resources, such as the legalisation of cannabis. Elected of the Lot-et-Garonne, Olivier Damaisin wants to go fast on the taxation of Gafa. He could support an amendment in this sense. "And so what if we pull the ears in Europe, assumes-t-it. This is not a tax unfair. Which is unfair, rather, it is that it doesn't exist."

The members LREM the finance committee met in the early afternoon at the Meeting this Tuesday. They agreed to grant their violins during a working lunch on Wednesday 12 December. Please, in the meantime, to avoid spread of individual initiatives. "The fair of the sausage, it is necessary to reserver it to the comitia farm," says a member of parliament macroniste.
