If the bill increases, the government’s revenues also increase because the government receives VAT. So, the first rule: the state cannot benefit from this disaster, therefore you must cut off from me all the burdens of the excess part, that is, the part of the increase. In general, the state does not levy excise taxes and VAT. First rule!” Like this Georgia Meloni during a rally in Milan’s Piazza Duomo on September 11, at the height of the election campaign, he spoke of the state’s obligations in the event of an increase in the bill.
