"his Son Pelle Åresson: Something is wrong, and you as politicians have taken the decisions"
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"the DEBATE. My mother was born in 1924 and was one of eight brothers and sisters. She started her first job when she was 13 years old. Like many other women born at this time, she was a housewife in the 50's, when we kids were small. "
"Mother has subsequently had various jobs in the kiosk, skolbespisning and care of the elderly. She has been gainfully employed and had income during the greater part of his adult life. "
"Our parents once had a property, but the we got to children as a gift over 30 years ago. Assets like bank deposits or shares is completely missing. She is a widow since 20 years. Bibbi will soon turn 94 years of age and lives since last year at a municipal home for the elderly in a borgligt controlled municipality. She is relatively healthy and leave yourself every day stay with her walker."
"Now to my actual case. Each month she receives notice of payment from the Authority. I shall not burden you with all the numbers but the supplementary pension, guarantee pension, housing allowance, widow's pension and the deduction of provisional tax means that she each month will get inserted 12 171 usd in his bank account. "
"of Every month will also an invoice from the municipality in respect of her omsorgskostnader on the property. It is service and care, basic fee, rent and måltidsavgift together 11 138 kru002Fmånad. She has thus left to dispose 1 033 kru002Fmånad or restated 34 usd per day. "
"When everything is paid there is, therefore, every month a little over a thousand left for the general. Today, I can also read in the local newspaper that the expenditure on social security goes back over 20 million per year, and that socialchefen therefore, among other things, proposes an increase of måltidsavgiften as if it goes through may result in a Bibbi instead of 535 kru002Fmånad or less than 18 kru002Fdag. "
"It takes for the boiler."
"It is fortunate that the mother does not use any medications. And that she not smoke or visit the Systembolaget. No, with such an economy, you have to be careful with spending. By the way, today came the bill for her newspaper, which she read in over 50 years. It will cost her 9 kru002Fdag if she decides to extend your subscription. "
"So with the increase of the måltidsavgiften, and continued the morning newspaper, she has finally, only 9 crowns left to spend each and every day. "
"I have also listened around the home for the elderly and understood that Bibbis situation is not unique. She has four grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren as she would like to give a bit of money on birthdays or at christmas. How shall it go to? Many others on the site are in the exact same situation as my mother."
"I thought maybe it differs between a bourgeois-controlled municipality with a socialist majority. Therefore, I called to the neighboring community where sossarna has its own majority then more than 70 years. The desk officer that I spoke with confirmed that it was largely the same charges where as in Bibbis municipality of residence. Thus, no difference."
"On my question what happens if my mom needs new winter boots or a new coat so I got the answer that she needs to go to social services. It is fortunate that Bibbi is so healthy that she can take rullatorn to the welfare office when the time comes. "
"Sweden is supposed to be one of the world's best countries to live in. How lucky that you are born here, you may wonder how they have it in the rest of the world. "
"I know that many acidic letter to the editor in newspapers and online complain our politicians and their decision-making. It is built hundrastgårdar and sports facilities, kids get free glasses and we subsidise electric bikes."
"today, I heard on the radio that we have to get konstgräsplaner – and we support all sorts of cultural and religious phenomena. "
"But the question is whether our politicians really make the right priorities? We give up a large portion of our earned money to the public to our politicians is better suited to manage funds than we are."
"Bibbis and many other people's situation depends on the decisions made by our national and local politicians. It is time for you to think of our elderly and take appropriate measures so that their situation improved. "
"Or what do you say Stefan Löfven, how would you fare of sek 9 per day when accommodation and food is paid and the morning paper is read? "
"Pelle Åresson, son of Bibbi Åresson, 93 years"
"328 000 of Sweden's pensioners are below the limit for the risk of relative poverty, according to figures from the EUROPEAN union. The proportion is significantly higher in Sweden than in our nordic neighbouring countries and even higher than in the majority of the rest of the EU. Today's commentator has calculated what his 93-year-old mother have left after food and shelter is paid – and ask themselves if our politicians really make the right priorities?"
