The creation of a contribution on financial transactions and record real-time data from the National Health System (SUS) were defended on Wednesday (16) by Mr Rogerio Carvalho (PT-SE). He presented a report on public health funding, the Special Committee of the Board of Health.

The document envisages a gradual increase of the annual revenue net current EU public health to reach 15%. The percentage should be reached in 2017. Money is the sum of all that the federal government collects over a year with taxes and contributions, excluding constitutional transfers to states and municipalities.

To fund public health, Rogério Carvalho proposes another source of revenue. Is Social Contribution for Health, a tax of 0.2% on the financial transactions, with some exemptions, from 2018. "No way is more democratic to raise funding for health," he said Carvalho.

Among the exemptions are the earnings of retirees, pensioners and other beneficiaries of Social Security that do not exceed the greater contribution salary, U.S. $ 4,159. Workers taxpayers of the general pension scheme and the pension of public servants, who get to the limit, will also be exempt.

According to Rogério Carvalho, the projected revenue with the new tax is somewhere between £ 38 billion and £ 40 billion annually. Added to 15% of annual net revenue of the Union, the total may reach R $ 70 billion more on health care per year.

The Congressman argues that the first step to be taken by the Executive for the proper functioning of public health, is to define the responsibilities of each health region, ie, how many people need health service in a particular locality.

The deputy gave as an example Aracaju, which has 600,000 inhabitants, but health responsibility for 2 million PHS users. The increase occurs because the capital of Sergipe attracts numerous residents of municipalities to health care. First we have to know the universe of people served by the system, if we do not we will not know how to project funding, said the rapporteur.

The leader of the DEM in the House, Rep. Ronaldo Whitewashed (GO), said that the proposal does not contribute to public health. The position of the Democrats will be against the report said.
