Feijóo invites Sánchez to continue copying PP proposals and lower personal income tax

Alberto Núñez Feijóo takes pride in the fact that Pedro Sánchez has accepted his proposal to lower VAT on gas from 21% to 5%, the third measure that he endorses from the anti-crisis program that he sent him in April. For this reason, he asks her to continue copying him, and now lower the IRPF, deflating the Income Tax rate and lowering the withholdings. The PP will be happy if it does, Feijóo said, as it is now because of the VAT reduction.

"Given that it has gone well this time" with the VAT, affirmed the president of the PP, "that he should do it more often". He gives him all his proposals, because they are not from the PP, but from the Spanish. All these measures, and those that he has proposed to lower inflation, for judicial independence, on national security, to modify article 49 of the Constitution, "are at the disposal of the Government."

As he did on Saturday in Galicia with its president, Alfonso Rueda, and on Wednesday in Malaga with Juanma Moreno, Núñez Feijóo accompanied Isabel Díaz Ayuso at the start of the course in Madrid, marked by the municipal and regional elections next May. And he did it in Alcalá de Henares, one of the big cities in Madrid where the PP does not govern, but has been in socialist hands for ten years.

He did it on the day when it becomes more evident to him that the government's economic policy is the wrong one, after knowing the inflation data and this very morning the unemployment data, the third worst figure in a month of August, and they see the horizon, said "recession clouds that dare not deny."

For this reason, the president of the PP considers it more necessary than ever to lower income tax for medium and low incomes, because when "families have less money, the state cannot break collection records at the expense of the people." His proposal is to return to the people "part of what the State has collected more, at the cost of the same products that they bought now being much more expensive."

He invites Sánchez to lower personal income tax, because he has come to the conclusion that "based on insisting", sometimes, "he listens to us" and adopts measures "with which I very much agree", such as lowering VAT on gas, "so much so that I've been asking for it for six months, because it's common sense". And since the PP "is a coherent party," he said, what seemed good to him when he proposed it, seems good to him now that the government proposes it.

And driven by that consistency, he now asks Pedro Sánchez's ministers to be consistent, and to say the same thing about Sánchez that they said about Núñez Feijóo, when the proposal was from the PP, such as "he had no idea of ​​​​public management" , that they wanted to charge public services, and that the measure "was impossible to apply.

But neither does he expect much from the ministers, nor from the government, since "the hallmark of sanchismo is to defend one thing and the opposite in a matter of minutes." As an example, the fact that the Minister of Transport pointed out yesterday, in Madrid, the possibility of increasing the aid for gasoline from the current 20 cents to 30", and at the same time, also in Madrid, the Minister of Finance stated that the Government did not consider increasing the bonus.

Feijóo accompanied the Madrid president, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, at the beginning of the political course, whom he praised and reassured: "When the PP goes well, someone from the government invents discrepancies and disputes between us." The president of the Pp finds it "curious that Sánchez fuels alleged divisions when the Government is an example in Europe of division."

Moreover, although both Feijóo and Ayuso know that they are different, now, with the government's criticism, "it is proving that we have something in common: We both make the Sánchez government very nervous."

The president of the Community, for her part, has declared the state of the campaign with a rally in Alcalá de Henares, one of the great bastions of more than 100,000 inhabitants of the red belt of Madrid, the great electoral objective of the PP in the face of the municipal elections of 2023 where he barely governs in 82 of the 179 municipalities in the region since the Ayuso effect did not arrive in time for the 2019 elections.

The president of the Community of Madrid has defined Sánchez as an "unscrupulous president of the Government willing to do anything and with whomever to stay in power", in relation to his pacts with Bildu.

And he has once again waved the flag of freedom that brought him so much revenue in 2021 to disfigure the management that, in his opinion, the PSOE is promoting, governing by Sánchez without dialoguing with a "deeply authoritarian" style. "Something that we don't like in Madrid," he stressed.

It was not until very late in his speech when Ayuso introduced regional elements such as his shock plan against the "occupation problem" or the "unprecedented disbursement" made for going back to school after the pandemic.
