It is proposed to repaint the walls of the Kremlin in white, so that the term “white stone” would not lose its relevance today, then - to increase pensions and wages with the indispensable price reduction, then - “distribute” to each “peasant woman”, then - to hit with a thick layer asphalt on the road from Kolyma to Murmansk, then ...
Due to the fact that in the overwhelming majority of cases, such initiatives and promises remain loud election slogans, you don’t know how seriously you can take a new, loud election initiative - that every citizen of the Russian Federation at the legislative level receives the right on the part of the federal budget revenues from mining. With a similar proposal for consideration by his colleagues made a presentation to the parliamentary faction of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation.
The deputy group headed by Sergei Obukhov states that “every Russian who has at least 9 work months a year and who has not received unemployment benefits has the right to receive his share. If you suddenly lost your job and received an allowance from the state, then sorry, mate, but this initiative is not for you ... You won’t get golden mountains from the extraction and sale of oil, gas, coal, silver, gold, iron ore, diamonds, rare-earth elements and etc.
The initiative group decided to “do much good” for the pensioners. The explanatory note states that the right to income from the state budget in the framework of the extraction and sale of minerals will also be received by pensioners who have worked for at least 5 years.
The authors of the bill:
The draft law not only fully takes into account the limited possibilities of the federal budget and the problems of the Russian economy, but also contains tools for the gradual improvement of the current situation. The size of guaranteed payments is not fixed and depends on a number of factors: the level of federal budget revenues from mining, the number of citizens eligible for profit, and the number of years elapsed since the adoption of the law.
Initially, it is planned to distribute 20% income from resource extraction in the Russian Federation, and then annually distribute among citizens by 2% more.
In other words, by the middle of the century, all 100% of the income from the extraction of minerals would have to be distributed by shares among the owners of Russian passports that fall under the criteria outlined above.
With all due respect to the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, friends, are you serious? The controversy is already in the initiative itself: the limited possibilities of the federal budget and problems in the economy are stated, and right there it is offered to all working Russians and pensioners to transfer certain guaranteed payments. Yeah ...
No - from the point of view of attempts to take care of the people, everything looks very nice - the party is going to realize the right of a citizen to manage Russian resources equally with others (for example, along with top managers of oil companies). I am a citizen, you are a citizen, and he (top manager) of the oil giant is also a citizen, and by law we are all equal in our rights. But only for this thesis to really work, the initiative to “divide” the income from the extraction and sale of the same oil is clearly not enough. The average top manager of a mining company is unlikely to agree with the initiative of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation on equal access to financial resources obtained from mining. But do the initiators of the idea have the tools to convince such a “dissenting” top manager? - big question.
After analyzing the oil and gas revenues of the federal budget, the size of the working population of the country, and the number of pensioners with work experience over 5 years, the authors of the legislative initiative declared: every Russian (one that fits the standard) could receive 12,9 thousand rubles in the next year from the state budget. This sum, Sergei Obukhov & Co., calls the “thirteenth salary” that the state will pay.
Well, let's say ... And what about the embodiment of the initiative, when "you have to" distribute all 100% of the income from resource extraction among citizens? It turns out that a citizen will receive a year, thousands of 80-90 rubles - and let him do what he wants, he does - the state does not need to think, because the income was distributed ... Of these funds, hire a district officer, a doctor, a teacher, throw off to contain museums, theaters, libraries. Do not forget about the army, because, as you know, it is necessary to feed, teach and rearm, so that you do not have to feed, teach and rearm another army ... In this case, this is what is happening: “Dear residents of the apartments of our entrance, the question is the agenda: let's drop the army and education today, or will we not need them this month? .. ”
If this initiative is about protecting the interests of the people, then the authors of the initiative are not confused in terminology. The welfare state does not mean that the role of the state is assumed by each representative of his society individually. After all, the state is exactly the structure, one of the primary tasks of which is the budget balance, the maintenance of the army, police, education, medicine, business promotion, etc. The appeal of the distribution of income from the extraction of resources “among all” frankly gives populism, in addition multiplied by accidental or consciously ignoring the understanding of the state’s role. It would be much more effective if the deputies put forward and implemented initiatives that really improve the mechanisms of development and the economy, and social affairs within the framework of the duties that state officials assume to citizens. If the fulfillment of state responsibilities for the effective use of the same state budget in such husbands is a problem, then you can simply look for work in another field.
