Even Eurocrats Realize that Taxes Can Be Too High

“Tax increases imposed by the Socialist-led government in France have reached a ‘fatal level’, the EU’s commissioner for economic affairs said today. Olli Rehn warned that a series of tax hikes since the Socialists took power 14 months ago – including €33bn in new taxes this year – threatens to ‘destroy growth and handicap the creation of jobs’. President Hollande has kept his electoral promise to attack French deficits and accumulated debt. He has done so, however, almost entirely by tax increases rather than by cuts in a state apparatus which swallows 56.6 per cent of the country’s GDP.  It has emerged that final budget plans for 2014 will include at least €6bn in tax rises.”
