KKE: Offset’ measures ‘the greatest fraud since parallel programme

The ‘offset’ measures cited by the SYRIZA-ANEL government to justify the new massacre of the income tax allowance, pensions and labour law are “a greater fraud than even the ‘parallel’ programme,” the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) said on Wednesday in a press release.

“Not only because these measures diminishingly small compared to what wage earners and pensioners have lost and will lose or because they will always be given with the approval of the ‘institutions’ but also because they mainly concern support for capital through tax exemptions and other such interventions in the name of growth,” KKE said.
