No to "European taxes" - A fair EU budget should be based on country contributions according to their relative wealth

The proposals for the creation of a new means of financial support – in the framework of own resources – to finance the European Union Budget and costs associated with the so-called "Recovery Fund", aim to pave the way for the institutionalization of a EU ‘fiscal policy’, intruding upon the fiscal policy of each State – a competence that lies at the heart of a country's sovereignty –, and to subvert the just principle that the EU budget should be based on the national contributions of Member States, according to their gross national income (GNI).
