Internet users discuss the results of the VTsIOM survey on support for the poor.
According to the results of the VTsIOM survey, most of our compatriots expressed their willingness to pay higher taxes in order to further provide state support to low-income citizens.
54% of the survey participants agreed to this option, with the reservation that support consists of providing a number of free services, including services in the field of security, education and health.
It is noted that among those who supported the tax increase, mostly people aged 60 and older.
28% of respondents chose the option with low taxes, which, according to them, will help each resident of the country to better manage their money.
83% of respondents expressed support for a progressive tax scale.
13% supported the same rate, regardless of income, writes RBC.
Netizens on the RIA Novosti website were violently outraged in the comments to the publication.
Many people are afraid that after the results of such surveys are announced, taxes will be raised again in the country at the request of workers.
& #8220;I do not know those who agree to pay more taxes, but the low-income, who constantly receive support from the state, are well known to everyone, Sechin, Miller, Usmanov, and so on…” – Dmitry Serov writes.
& #8220;Are these the same Russians who longed for an increase in the retirement age? Are they for a four-day working week (with a reduction in wages as a consequence)?”, & #8211; asks Axel Foley.
“I understand that this poll & #8211; is the threshold of the next pseudo-reforms directed against the people.. when will it stop?”, & #8211; emphasizes Alina Bogdanova.
& #8220;How naive. Is the majority of the people in our country for raising pensions and taxes ”, & #8211; Vasily Semenov is surprised.
“I don’t know who was interviewed there, but I personally don’t support this ”, & #8211; says Blade 1.
& #8220;Nonsense. Who are these & #8220;most of the Russians & #8221; and who fits the category of & #8220;poor & #8221;???? I have a PO of 30 thousand. Am I the first or the second???”, & #8211; interested in Dmitry Popov.
& #8220;Which Russians are willing to pay HIGHER taxes to the poor? What nonsense is this?! Take taxes from your Rotenbergs and their companies, sell the palaces and give them to the poor!”, & #8211; advises Malyuta Skuratov.
