The General State Budgets that the Government has presented are “Reckless, electoralists and irresponsible” and they leave Spain at “serious risk of vulnerability” when we are in a situation of “uncertainty and downward economic estimates.” This is how the PP has described the new public accounts that the socialcommunist government has presented this Wednesday.
The spokesperson for the popular in Congress, Cuca Gamarra, appeared shortly after the presentation of the public accounts made by the Minister of Finance, María Jesús Montero. Gamarra regrets that these Budgets are based on “unrealistic forecasts” and imply “more waste, more deficit, more debt, more taxes on the middle class, more concessions to the independentists” and “an attack on legal security and economic stability” .
In this sense, the new economic project of the Social Communist Government, in his opinion, “confirms that the Government is the greatest obstacle to the growth of the economy and the creation of employment”, but it is also “dead paper” when estimates growth rates for the country are “down.”
In this sense, he recalled that for this year 2021 the previous accounts projected a growth of 9.8%, which has subsequently been revised to 6.5% -after the successive outbreaks of the Covid virus and the consequent activity restrictions-, and that even so “all indicators predict that it will close (this year) below.”
Deficit and unemployment
On the other hand, Gamarra has regretted that the new accounts “Delve into structural deficit”, which “do not reduce the unemployment rate prior to the pandemic” and which represent a tax collection of more than 4,000 million euros.
Finally, he has indicated that he does not trust the European funds of the Recovery Plan to contribute to economic growth, since he believes that, even incorporating more than 27,000 million in the accounts of 2022, “The problem is one of management”. In this sense, he pointed out that as of August 31, these funds had an execution of 5% compared to what was budgeted for 2021 to warn that, “no matter how much it is budgeted, it will hardly be executed.”
