The failure of a roughly 50-year-old suspension bridge in Genoa shows how important it is to increase investment spending in Italy, Salvini told reporters Tuesday in Catania, Sicily, hinting that EU spending limits had put lives at risk.
“If external constraints prevent us from spending to have safe roads and schools, then it really calls into question whether it makes sense to follow these rules,” Salvini, who heads the euroskeptic League, said. “There can be no tradeoff between fiscal rules and the safety of Italians.”
Salvini is absolutely correct here. When you have infrastructure that needs to be maintained and such massive unemployment, you put the people to work! The EU prevents that from happening with its ridiculous limits on spending.
