"What exactly are our proposals?- We want a financial transaction tax (In March 2011, an overwhelming majority of the MEPs called for the introduction of just such a tax).Lord save us.
- We want Eurobonds (Joint bonds issued at a low rate of interest can ease the debt crisis and stabilise the banking system).
- We want a European rating agency (a rating agency which breaks the US monopoly, which makes its assessments on the basis of clear criteria)
- We want a European growth initiative."
President Schulz also warned that a fiscal union which is not subject to scrutiny by parliamentarians is unacceptable and that the coherence of Union Law must be preserved.
