Super bonus 110, here is the Meloni government cut. Premier and Giorgetti: “38 billion hole”

Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni defends tightening the Superbonus 110. From next year it will be a “Superbonus 90”, because the former “has created a hole of 38 billion euros” and “corrected the distortions”, says the President of the Council , thus shelving one of the symbolic measures of the Conte government, which had already been questioned by Mario Draghi. Then, as today, the leader of the 5 Star Movement is not there and screams the betrayal of the “pact with families and companies”. A mediator could be Forza Italia, which announces changes in Parliament for a gradual and smooth application of the new rule.

In the morning, Meloni convenes a press conference to illustrate in detail the content of the new aid decree approved yesterday by the Council of Ministers. And speaking of the building rehabilitation measure, he admits that “we always shared their objectives, but the way it was carried out created many problems and difficulties”. The 110% super bonus “did not work, the coverage generated a loss of liability: we did not ask ourselves whether the price of the works was congruent and this led to an increase in the prices of raw materials. In addition, the benefit was mainly in favor middle and upper classes”, attacks the prime minister. But above all, “I would like to point out to those who campaigned saying that the Superbonus allows you to renovate your home for free that this ‘free’ weighs in the state coffers around 60 billion euros and created a hole of 38 billion”.

Meloni says this to avoid the criticism he expects from the M5S and Giuseppe Conte, who arrive promptly. “The government changes the current rules and breaks the pact with families and companies, harming those who already had planned investments. It not only operates in perfect continuity with the Draghi government, but also reinforces the boycott of this measure. Meloni was from the opposition ” , is the answer entrusted to Facebook by the president of the Movement. Also for the Democratic Party it is a “direct intervention without strategy” with “no solution in the release of credits”. says Chiara Braga, responsible for the ecological transition and infrastructure of the dem. And more or less the construction companies are aligned in the same line: “Changing the rules of the superbonus in 15 days means penalizing above all the condominiums that started last”, that is, those “from the periphery and from the less affluent groups that, in order to start the work, needed more time”, explains the president of Ance Federica Brancaccio, asking for “a discussion with the government in a serious and responsible way to avoid that the weaker and more regular companies pay”.

Contractors are also awaiting clarification on the release of problem loans, “to prevent many companies from failing due to lack of liquidity” and “increase in unemployment”. But on this point, Economy Minister Giorgetti doesn’t seem willing to make too many concessions. “I want to say that the assignment and transferability of the tax credit is a possibility, not a right. credit, otherwise we would have created a currency that was not created”, he explains, stressing however that “we must create spaces so that existing tax credits can be deducted from the State budget. When this measure was studied, it was a time of emergency and the impact may not have been evaluated.”

A falling point could be found within the government majority itself. For Forza Italia it is “necessary to give certainty to the operators of the sector and not to constantly change the picture” and “work to advance the validity period of the installations by at least one month for those who have already resolved in the condominium gathered and have already signed contracts”, they announce. the presidents of the blue parliamentary groups, Licia Ronzulli and Alessandro Cattaneo, anticipating their intention to present “an ad hoc amendment in Parliament, also to guarantee an adequate transition time. But not only” – they warn – because, although “sharing the logic of the changes”, it is necessary to start “immediately a table with trade associations” and “avoid the collapse of the construction sector”, with “a timely intervention aimed at releasing tax credits”.
