They will be replaced by elected more pahse with the position taken by the executive line.
Presented Monday, September 29, the PLFSS provides 700 million euros in savings on family allowances. Cuts severely criticized on the right, but also by some Socialist deputies “slingers”, who wanted to try to influence government policy.
“METHOD is detestable”
Jean-Marc Germain and Christian Paul had scrapped hard in the Commission against amending the social security budget passed in July, which included a general freeze pensions until 2015 . This position became uncomfortable to the point that Paul finally prefers to leave his position as rapporteur PLFSS early September.
Their stances irritated part of the Socialist Group, but the decision to exclude them completely is a surprise. “The method is detestable” , choked Catherine Lemorton, PS chairman of the Committee on Social Affairs, warned by SMS. “I knew there would be changes, but then to do so without consultation! “
Conversely, Gerard Bapt, Socialist rapporteur PLFSS, believes that the decision clarifies things. ” For the Social Affairs Committee it was very difficult to always be just one vote, the rapporteur could be beaten and it posed a political problem he explains . The chair of the committee complained, I remember one day, she made an amendment vote in speed while people had not arrived. There was a bad atmosphere because of that. “
