The consul leader asks that “fiscal effort” count in the distribution of the state’s income.
socialists want to give Fiscal fight that PP Alberto Nez Feizu Taking the tax debate into the political realm and taking it with pedagogy. Months before the election and with the crisis of inflation reducing the purchasing power of citizens due to war, the President of the Government, Pedro Sanchezand President of the Valencian Community, zimo puigocreated a common front this Friday in Valencia so that, in the face of a complex situation like the current one, the welfare state cannot be “limited” with tax cuts for the “more prosperous” such as may be proposed. Both have attempted to explain the effects of reduction in tax revenue on the public exchequer.
Sanchez, recently landed from the United Nations in New York, had an informal meeting with Puig at the Palau de la Generalitat, before attending an eldiario.es event to be held in the city. According to regional government sources, during the half-hour meeting, “Priority Issues on the Valencian Agenda”,
As Valencian government sources have reported, Puig has put the possibility on President Sánchez’s table that autonomy “also counts fiscal effort when redistributing state income.” that is, Generalitat wants regional financing system to penalize tax dumping And that those regions that abolish autonomous taxes cannot claim more resources from the government at the same time.
Without citing them, Puig thus focuses on Andalusia and Murcia, the worst-financed communities after Valencia and which, however, have joined the PP’s financial offensive and announced tax cuts.
After the appointment, the President of the Government spoke to the Plaza del Ayuntamiento. There he has defended management that both his executive and the European Union have faced before the Covid pandemic and now in Ukraine, stressing that the social democratic model has allowed a faster and more supportive response. Compared to the crisis given in 2008, when “neoliberal conservatism” was chosen.
Thus, it is affected Spain faced “tax competition” proposed by PP, “the important thing is to preserve the welfare state” Because it “unifies societies and protects us from adversity”. The president thus regards financial ‘dumping’, which is often condemned by the Valencian community.
Without going into details, he went on to say that “where there were waivers and tax gifts”, alluding to Rajoy’s mandate of the PP, there will now be reforms that guarantee that those with the most contribute the most. do “and” of redistribution effort”.
Discount “at the worst of times”
In the same sense, Puig has criticized that the tax cuts proposed by the PP across the country may be valid “at another time”, but that now “makes no sense”, “We need to strengthen the welfare state because we need the resources because we are indebted to the public exchequer,” assured the president, who will present the Valencian tax reform proposal on Tuesday.
In any case, the PSPV leaders are back to claim “Deep Tax Reform” In Spain so as to “have the highest salary” and thus “comply” the constitution, because according to Puig it is not “progressive enough”. In this sense, he has once again advocated “fiscal harmonization” which places a floor on possible discounts on regional rates, particularly with taxes “which may mean relocation”.
Furthermore, the head of the Valencian executive wants to separate the recent announcements on fiscal matters initiated by the PP Autonomy from the actual debate on taxes. He has acknowledged that this is a “partisan use” of popular people because of the closeness of the elections and that it also comes “at the worst of times”, according to Puig.
“You can’t ask for more resources for a part and give up the part you can get them for”, has lamented the respect of autonomy such as Andalusia, Valencian partners in the fight to improve funding, but at the same time reduce their collection capacity by abolishing regional taxes such as inheritance. “It affects 19,000 people in Andalusia and 22,000 here. Those people can pay for it,” he concluded.
