The Swedish Democrat party wants to give all citizens in Sweden over $1100, while children will get over $550.

This was revealed during their shadow budget. they want to give everyone a one off payment in order to increase consumption.

“The answer is a state one time benefit of SEK 10 000 for every Swedish citizen and SEK 5 000 for children under 5 years of age. Everyone should be included, young and old, sick and healthy, employed and unemployed. The benefit should also not affect or be affected by other incomes. This is to avoid cheating and threshold effects and to minimize the cost of administration of the measure. Everyone have been affected by the pandemic and Sweden has a responsibility to it’s citizens, that responsibility means that the benefit should be distributed equally.” the party says.

This would cost the Swedish tax payer some $10.3 billion.

The Swedish Democrat party is considered a right-wing nationalist party, however this move has caused some people to belive they are more socialist than what they say.
