Gyeonggi Gyeonggi Gyeonggi Governor Lee Jae-myeong, who made a basic income, and Seoul City Mayor Oh Se-hoon, who made a safe income, are fighting every day.
On the 30th, Governor Lee strongly criticized the safe income, saying, “It seems like a lie,” through his Facebook page.
Governor Lee said, “Oh mayor’s safe income is not to increase tax while giving out 17 trillion won in cash every year.” “No matter how much I think about it, it feels like a lie,” he urged, saying, “If you make 17 trillion won without symptoms, it’s a miracle ability.”
Since the 28th, Governor Lee has been onslaught against Mayor Oh’s safe income every day. On the 28th, he pointed out, “We will make a conflict between the people who only pay taxes and the group that receives only beneficiaries.” Safe income aims to support low-income people who provide tax guidance. In addition, on the 29th, he said, “That’s it, the suspicion that it is a vain pledge to deceive citizens will be resolved.”
Mayor Oh Se-hoon also posted a post on his Facebook page on the 29th and hit it up. Mayor Oh criticized, “I wonder if the people struggling with the tax bomb will agree to the tax increase (for basic income).” The branch’s basic income was then stipulated as’fake basic income’ and’pattern only basic income’. Unlike safe income, which is based on selective payment, basic income is a universal payment. Mayor Oh argued that “basic income is clearly reverse discrimination because the benefits are low for the low-income group, and it is much unfair because it also reverses polarization,” he argued, saying that safe income is better.
