Italian Church calls for tax cuts for squeezed families


Rome, October 24 - The Catholic Church said on
Wednesday that the government should be trying to reduce the tax
burden of Italian families rather than squeezing them harder
with more austerity.
Premier Mario Monti's tax hikes and spending cuts have
eased the threat of Italy following Greece on the path towards
default but they have also deepened the recession the country
slipped into last year.
A new budget bill that is going through parliament will see
value added tax rise by 1% next year if it is approved, while
income tax will be lowered in the two lowest bands and there
will be more cuts to health and education.
"It is not right nor sufficient to demand further
sacrifices from families who, on the contrary, need policies of
support, including those that move in the direction of
lightening the tax burden," the Italian Bishops' Conference
(CEI) said in its message for the 35th national 'day for life'.
