The coalition agreement between the Labor Party (PvdA) and the People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD) proposed spending cuts in elder care totaling 2.8 billion euros. Gupta Strategists researched the possible effects of these cuts and for various scenarios calculated the feasibility of the cuts and their impact on purchasing power.
The study shows that all elderly people in need of care will be adversely affected by these cuts, as spending cuts for people with high incomes alone will not be sufficient. People with mid-level incomes will also be very negatively affected, and everyone will be responsible for arranging more of their own care.
