No, they voted for it after winning significant concessions, as told in the press release: crisis tax on the wealthy, crisis support for those on minimum wage, annulment of cuts in education, culture, public transport, elimination of coal and gas subsidies, support for solar power. But I find nothing on how they explain choosing to extract these concessions from the outgoing Rutte government rather than its successor elected in the next elections, or on how propping up Rutte will influence Rutte's chances in the next election.
