In fear of the financial markets with a possible tax loss in 2022, the federal government’s economic team is working to allay suspicion and show its commitment to balanced public accounts. The Special Secretary for the Treasury and the Budget, Bruno Funchal, told the newspaper “O Globo” that the 2022 budget – which will be sent to Congress by August 31 – will provide for the full payment of nearly 90 billion reais of court orders, without payment. . Any adjustment will be made later, if the Constitutional Amendment Proposal (PEC) which provides for the installment of these debts is approved.
“As the PEC is now proposed, the government will send the budget to Congress proposing the full payment of these judicial debts, as determined by law,” said Funchal, which guaranteed an unrestricted commitment from the Economy Ministry to fiscal responsibility.
Also according to the report, the budget that will be sent by the government will not include any adjustment for Bolsa Família either. The Auxílio Brasil program, successor to Bolsa Família, was created as an interim measure, but it did not specify the values of the services, which will be defined in a subsequent regulation. President Jair Bolsonaro has guaranteed that the average benefit will be at least 50% higher than what is currently paid by Bolsa Família (around R $ 190).
