Promised to the French in the summer in the face of galloping inflation, the bill on purchasing power and its myriad of support measures arrive Monday in the hemicycle of the Assembly, where the oppositions will storm proposals new aid.

The bill of 20 articles "on emergency measures for the protection of purchasing power" passes first reading until Thursday, with more than a thousand amendments to the key.

MEPs will continue with the examination of the draft amending budget for 2022 which should make it possible to finance and supplement these measures.

The tripling of the Macron bonus

Among the main ones are the early revaluations of 4% of retirement pensions and social benefits, the 3.5% increase in the salary of public officials, a means-tested food check of 100 euros, to which will be added 50 euros per child.

There is also the extension of the fuel discount of 18 cents and the tariff shield on energy, the abolition of the audiovisual license fee or even the tripling of the Macron bonus (tax-free and desocialized).
