New Government in The Netherlands

Real Estate Agent with Compass CalBRE# 01839597

The Dutch have a new governement: Rutte II. It is a coalition between PvdA (party of the workers) and the VVD. This coalistion between the moderate left a moderate right wing is planning on reducing overhead and cutting costs across the board.  

The Dutch are in for a rough couple of years, at least the coming year will be a year of paying more out of pocket.  They will have to pay more for medical insurance plans as well as pay more out of pocket.  I have been traveling back to The Netherlands to care for my sick mother who isn't getting better for several years now.. I have seen the difference in medical coverage she has received.  The care is now much more regulated and permission is required for medical supplies whereas before it was easier to receive the needed products. The nursing staff too mentioned that they have to do more with less.

This government has a relative large number of women in high ranking positions such as the post of minister for Defense.  

Even though the installation of the new government is the news of the day the media has not forgotten about the US elections tomorrow.

Anja, interesting, as I have not heard anything about the government changing in the Netherlands.    I think many countries are having difficulties with finances, and probably will be the trend for a bit longer, unfortunately.
