the hague - The parties in the House of Representatives have reacted badly on Wednesday evening to the increase of the care premium next year by about 10 euros. This increase stems from the plan of the coalition in order to freeze the risk of EUR 385 next year.
The PVV spoke about fraud and a ridiculous cigar from its own box. THINK, it was about a rock system and 50PLUS called it a consolation prize. The Party for the Animals Shame. The PvdA expressed criticism of the whole course of business.
The SP and GroenLinks advocated a 'better way' or other solution to capture the expected costs of 150 to 170 million euros, which arise when the previously planned increase of own risk to 400 euros is reversed.
Mona Keijzer of the CDA, who together with VVD, D66 and ChristenUnie wants to form the new cabinet, defended the increase in care premium as a 'result of choice' not to increase its own risk.
