The PP heats up the elections with the fiscal debate and the different models of Feijóo and Sánchez

The fiscal battle opened by the president of Andalusia, Juanma Moreno, with his announcement of the abolition of the Wealth Tax and the reduction of personal income tax, with the deflation of the regional section, goes beyond a war for collection between territories, and It has become a political battle between the PSOE and the PP, on the eve of elections, the municipal and regional elections in May, which everyone will read in terms of general politics.

The different conception that both parties have about whether it is good or bad to raise or lower taxes, responds to an economic model, and therefore a political one, that the PP wants to confront in the municipal and regional elections, to demonstrate what the PP would do in the Government, with Feijóo as president, and what Sánchez would do and does.

The best, for this, are the examples, and there are Madrid, Andalusia or Castilla y León, or other autonomous communities, and the popular ones boast of having the data in their favor: With less taxes, Madrid and Andalusia have collected more. With them they want to combat the message of the Government and the PSOE, which has come out in a storm to say that with these tax cuts public services will suffer, which they deny as they do not see reduced income.

They are two different conceptions, they underline in the PP, on which the citizens will have to choose, as they did in Andalusia, where the Government is now raising its hands to its head, but Juanma Moreno attended the elections before the summer with the promise of abolish the Wealth Tax.

In the PP they also see the way in which the Government and the PSOE have focused criticism on the abolition of the Wealth Tax, which only represented a collection of 93 million euros in 2020, because they are not interested in focusing on the most important of the tax reduction in Andalusia, the reduction in personal income tax, with the deflation of the rate in the autonomous section to the sections with less income, as Madrid and Castilla y León have already announced, and Feijóo at Sánchez's request, because the Government will have to end up doing it to help the families most affected by the crisis.

Two models, then, that the PP is interested in contrasting, and that made the PP national leadership bring out its general coordinator, Elías Bendodo, this morning to support and endorse the fiscal measures of Juanma Moreno, placing them on a different plane who is interested in the PSOE. "Andalusia intends to reactivate the economy," he stressed in statements made in the Senate, and "recover the heritage of Andalusians who had gone to other autonomous communities, due to the high tax that was in Andalusia."

Bendodo underlined that the reduction of taxes "is in the DNA of the PP", that "the European social democrats have assumed", and in which the Spanish Government is an exception due, underlined the number three of the PP, to the fact that "the PSOE is has podemized". That is why the conclusion of the popular leadership is clear: "No one can be surprised that a PP government lowers taxes. It is not a question of competition, but of coherence."

What Bendodo emphasized was the attempt at fiscal "harmonization" proposed by the Minister of Inclusion, José Luis Escrivá, because, he said, "you have to start trembling, because when they talk about harmonizing, the PSOE always means raising taxes" .
