Did not give birth: families where there are few children, they want to tax

And the money received in such a non-trivial way, to send to payments to those who diligently bears fruit and multiplies.

“We were overtaken by a demographic catastrophe,” thought the politicians and began to invent how to fix the matter. What has not been invented: benefits, and maternity capital, and benefits. Not all measures, however, work. But they tried.

And now the state minds overtook another enlightenment. Another bill was sent to the President for consideration, the goal of which is to support large families. A great goal!

“The concept of the law“ On the Status of Federal Families ”is such that it will solve the demographic situation in the country by 2030,” said the author of the document, director of the Institute for Demography, Migration and Regional Development, Yuri Krupnov.

However, the measures proposed by Mr. Krupnov, cause some bewilderment. Not all, no.For example, the provision of large families with plots of communications, assistance in building a house is great. Equating the education of children to work experience is also not bad. Cash payments, differentiated depending on the welfare of each individual family - why not. Targeted assistance in the form of vouchers, season tickets to theaters and fitness clubs is simply great. But there is a very controversial point.

In particular, Yury Vasilievich proposed to tax small families. These are those in which one child or no children at all. There is only one thing that can justify such "fruitless" alliances - medical indications. The proceeds will be sent to help those who do not shirk from the cause of reproduction and diligently fruitful. Recall that large families are considered as having three or more children. That is, if you have two, or you plan to first save for housing, then give birth, you have to fork out.

In fairness, we note that such initiatives do not arise for the first time. In the USSR, it also existed. And collected it for a long time: almost 50 years. In 2013, they offered to return this tax, and the initiative came from a priest.The invention did not receive support, but it has now surfaced again. And this is our only, domestic fun. Nowhere else in the world are demographic taxes practiced. Is that in Kazakhstan remembered the original Soviet requisitions.

The first criticism of the law is already there. Andrei Korotaev, head of the laboratory for monitoring the risks of the socio-political destabilization of HSE, believes that it is better to use proven methods - for example, to provide housing for many children. And “punitive demography” will only turn people against the law.

By the way, one more thing. Large, according to Krupnova, can only be called complete families. That is a single mother with four children flies past help. Immediately reveals the revelations of the Perm deputy, who considered children born out of wedlock "the accidental fruits of corporate events." Thank you for not calling bastards - in the best traditions of the medieval monarchy.

And if suddenly such a policy takes action, everyone will have many children, and mothers will work as educators of their own children - who will support this army? ..

P.S. Yuri Krupnov himself is married. However, in one of his biographies there is no mention of children.Probably, such a supporter of large families have them. But I want to quote a popular Internet meme: this is not accurate.
