Less than 48 hours after Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban was reelected in a landslide, the EU announced they're going to trigger a never-before-used mechanism aimed at cutting tens of billions of euros in funding to Hungary for violating so-called "democratic norms."
From Politico, "EU launches process to slash Hungary’s funds over rule-of-law breaches":
The European Commission will soon trigger a powerful new mechanism to cut funding to Hungary for eroding the bloc's rule-of-law standards, Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said Tuesday."Poland was the top beneficiary of E.U. aid in the 2014-2020 budget, receiving 104 billion euros, or $118 billion," the Washington Post reports. "Hungary, whose population is about a quarter of the size of Poland's, received 40 billion euros, or $45 billion."
Nothing says "democracy" quite like putting sanctions on an ally for voting the wrong way in a democratic election!
