Piedmont pays a pledge on the distribution of funds for health care. And the Region does not like it. Today the regional councilor for health of Piedmont, Luigi Icardi, spoke at the Unified Conference of the Regions to express all the opposition to the government provision that modifies the allocation criteria of the National Health Fund, “a rule that strongly penalizes the Regions with the higher percentage of the elderly population, such as Piedmont and Liguria, favoring those with a higher prevalence of young people, namely Campania ».
On the barricades
Piedmont, by far the most penalized Region, will formalize the defense of the interests of its elderly population, challenging the provision in the offices of institutional competence: this is explained in the press release of the Region. The Piedmontese commissioner speaks of a “left hand” that this summer intervened to change the rules of the allotment to favor the Campania Region, “coincidentally the only one who had not signed the allotment and made an appeal and thus today obtains over 50 million more, to the detriment of Piedmont, which instead loses 25 million euros in national funding for health care ».

If everyone has the same rights, disregarding the need for care for the elderly by the logic of the Palazzo is not acceptable, because it is against the equality that represents one of the cardinal principles of our Constitution “
