On the financing of the European Union

On the financing of the European Union

In its report on the future of EU funding presented to the European Parliament on 2 February, the ' High Level Group on own resources ' was tasked with finding new ways of financing the Union's own. These would be in EU-wide sampling mechanisms, for example in the field of electricity, financial transactions or CO2. It would also be about paying the Union a share of corporate tax or gasoline taxes. These discussions are being followed in a sensible way by the Member States, at a time when migratory and security crises are multiplying, and in the context of the Brexit. Increasing tax pressure by proposing only the increase and not the rationalization of the use of resources will only add to the disaffection that strikes the European Union. The latter discusses the renewal of its tax system in the seat of its fortress.
Would it not be more productive for the Commission to revise the allocation of the Union's existing resources, i.e. ' do better with less '?
