Hungarys prime minister has announced a raft of measures aimed at boosting the countrys declining birth rate and reducing immigration. Giving his annual State of the Nation address Sunday, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban announced a seven-point Family Protection Action Plan designed to promote marriage and families.
Measures announced included waivers on personal income tax for women raising at least four children for the rest of their lives and subsidies for large families to buy larger cars. The action plan also extended a loan program to help families with at least two children to buy homes. Every woman under 40 will also be eligible for a preferential loan when she first gets married.

Mm...in Russia these measures did not work because the economy is still so weakened by lack of diversification and centralization...
I have heard Hungary can afford to be more free market...
Libs always say they want baby murder to be safe, rare and legal. However, they wont support this.
If the rest of the Euro countries has leaders like Orban, theyd be in far better shape.
In before Neocon Soros trolls would come to inform you on how it is all fake and how bad and Putinista the Hungarian administration is.
Then again Russia’s demographic stalemate can also be tied to Putin’s refusal to make abortion illegal...abortion being a cornerstone Soviet institution by the way.
Orban may be different at least in this regard. I am not aware of Hungary’s abortion laws.
Oops, I was late and not entirely correct. They are getting wiser.
Well, in our country we subsidize out-of-wedlock births, and we sure have a lot of them!
We should give financial incentives for stable couples to have that 3rd kid.
A poorly written sentence, but an idea that's certainly worth a try.
(but the ladies would be wise to get it in writing ;-)
Hungary for Hungarians. Such a proud people. Hope they get busy...
Nope. Lins will scream for child support but never for pregnant with child support.
Does not stop them from saying they care for children after they are born more than Republicans... what a crock of sht.
In the US we have around 1 million abortions (more or less) with about the same number of people immigrating legally and illegally - 1 million.
Arms of an Angel
Government Rewarding citizens for getting married and having children. Instead of taxing them to the point where they can not afford marriage much less children.
Rodney Dangerfield said the only thing good about kids is making them. All jokes aside I think Hungary is doing a good thing.
God is smiling
