During the day on Wednesday 13, the project that sought to modify the fundamental letter to allow the withdrawal of funds from insurance companies, under the modality of life annuities, was discussed in the Chamber of Deputies and Deputies, which was rejected by 23 votes against and 13 abstentions, reaching only 87 votes in favor and required 92.
In the instance, Socialist deputy Marcos Ilabaca pointed out that “this day we hoped that the voices of thousands and thousands of Chileans who have been forgotten during the pandemic would be heard. These 10 months of Covid-19 in Chile, we have discussed in Congress, various projects that seek to help families who are having such a bad time, and again, the door closes in our faces ”.
“The lack of empathy and selfishness of this government have been the highest barriers that have been placed on us to be able to legislate and get real aid for all Chileans. But In this instance, it has been the deputies themselves who have defended the pockets of the owners of insurance companies and .s.. The lack of empathy that the Government has had for not being able to generate concrete aid for those who are under the life annuity regime is really angry and helpless « , he emphasized.
“Despite the rejection of this project, we will continue to insist on the discussion, so that a solution can be generated for the thousands of affiliated with life annuities, who have seen the worst face of the pandemic, living with miserable pensions and trying to juggle to face this health crisis ”, he stressed.
