Propensity of French people to reduce taxes at the expense of the public service 2013

This statistic presents the opinion of the French on whether we should increase or decrease taxes at the expense of the public service in a survey from 2013. It appears that just over 30 percent of the French people surveyed felt that public services had to be improved, even if the level of taxes and levies had to increase.

Would you be willing to give up some public services to pay less taxes? *
