"the minister of social services: New resources in the vårbudgeten directly to the care of the elderly"
"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. Sweden has a large elderly generation that has worked and worked a full working life to build this country. "
"As seniors, they have the right to expect a secure economy and a strong care for the elderly. Therefore, the government increased the resources to the welfare during the last parliamentary term – and so shall we continue. "
"the Moderates and the Christian democrats had a different strategy. In his budget, which received the support of The sweden democrats, lowered the taxes by 20 billion, cut two billion on the elderly and the la then to some targeted projects in the äldreområdet. "
"Two of these projects, the government has now chosen not to go forward with, because they were judged to have insufficient effects. Project funding was eur 310 million. It is money that never has paid and that the municipalities neither have been asking for."
"We will instead make even bigger bets – that can make a real difference. The government announced already in the autumn of 2018, five new välfärdsmiljarder for 2019. "
"In vårbudgeten the municipalities receive also 500 million, more directly addressed to the care of the elderly. It is allocated in addition to 300 million to build more äldreboendeplatser. "
"in The coming years, we shall continue to increase the resources, it's already happening in the years and shall continue each year during the term of office. The upcoming term of office shall be at least 20 billion sek in additional state funds must be added welfare. It is so we equip Sweden for the big demographic changes ahead."
"the Municipalities must use the money within the part of the elderly care where they see the needs are greatest. What the elderly need is major general resurstillskott in the billions so that more people can be employed – not more small symbolsatsningar that creates more bureaucracy and micro-management. "
"We increased state spending on local welfare with 35 billion in the previous term and we employee over 100 000 more people in the välfärdsverksamheterna. Now, we will continue. "
"We shall both raise pensions and to strengthen the care for our elderly. So, we create a stronger community and a safer Sweden."
