The parliamentary spokesperson and general coordinator of the Popular Party (PP), Juan José Alonso, emphasized that the agreement signed by the president of the region, María José Sáenz de Buruaga, and the general secretary of the PRC, Miguel Ángel Revilla, is “a “responsibility training with a long vision and an example of effective dialogue that is very positive for Cantabria.”
He emphasized that this agreement will allow the autonomous community to have budgets on January 1, 2024, as established by law, while regretting that there are political groups that so far have not made “any proposal” except criticism of a document that does not exist. recorded.
Referring to the assessments of the agreement made by the spokesmen of PSOE and Vox, Alonso indicated that the document remains open to new contributions and that the PP is ready to “talk to everyone, without vetoes or restrictions”, and stressed that the measures proposed by the PP government are “economic revitalization and wealth generators.”
And as for Vox, the PP called on it to “not isolate itself” and join the proposals.
Alonso pointed out that this agreement is “punctual” to continue the accounts of the region and “does not condition” the program of the PP government because “it is based on the coincidence of priorities to promote economic growth, job creation, and the well-being of citizens, and create public narratives that revitalize the community’s economy.”
The leader of the PP also emphasized that the agreement with the regionalists also means compliance with the investment agreements, and introduced the qualifications that “do not affect most of the tax figures.”
He detailed that the personal income tax on income between 21,000 and 60,000 euros is reduced by half a point. A decrease, he explained, was offset by an increase of one point for the income section above 90,000 euros.
Likewise, for the wealth tax, which has been abolished in Cantabria, a transitional provision has been introduced so that net assets of more than 3 million euros are taxed in the autonomous community “as long as Pedro Sánchez continues the tax in several cases.”.
Finally, Alonso pointed out that the project of the Cantabria Budget for the next year will stand for “discretion and responsibility”, betting on essential public services (with a large increase in the Health and Education items), designing a program for real investment, grants, municipal affiliation, and no increase in debt.
