MessageMr. Speaker,
People who cannot support themselves should get a job, and "get it together". Our nation is not a charity.
The very basic income is fine for any individual. While the provisions cannot exceed a certain period of time.
Of course, we may be generous here in the government, but we also have to look after other things, today you have one person using the minimum income; tomorrow you have 10 thousand. While it doubles, triples, etc it breaks the national treasury. While because of unlimited minimum income, we will most likely have to deny some people of it. Not everyone without a job can get it in this kind of situation.

MessageMr. Speaker,

The allowance paid to the unemployed here will be high enough to maintain them in dignity but not so high as to discourage work, since it falls below the minimum wage. We really need to take poverty seriously in this country. We must not allow the chasm between rich and poor to expand. Those on the lowest incomes must not be left behind.
