The Popular Party was present yesterday at the Assembly of the Family Business Institute, IEF, which was held yesterday at the Casa de América, with a large number of prominent businessmen. There he defended his Fiscal Measures Plan and reiterated that Sánchez is not willing to agree on anything.
In this framework, and in dialogue with José Luis Blanco, General Executive Director of the IEF, the spokesperson and general secretary of the PP, Cuca Gamarra, defended the need to reach State agreements and pactsat times like this, an action that is being disregarded by Pedro Sánchez, who precisely this Tuesday, and for the second consecutive time, rejected through the Socialist Group in Congress, the Plan of Urgent Measures defended by the PP in a Proposal of Law , plan with which it intends, among other actions, to reduce the VAT on electricity and fuel from 21 to 5% -as the EU already allows- and, to deflate, not to reduce, the IRPF of medium and low incomes, in a way temporary and selective.
In pursuit of a better climate for the company, and specifically for the family company, in addition to offering itself as a “government alternative”, emphasizing stability as a hallmark, and Gamarra supported the simplification of bureaucracy and the path towards a single market.
Expenses that do not produce
Almost at the end of her conversation with the general director of the IEF, the popular leader stressed the need to undertake a study of the unproductive public spending of the Spanish State. Gamarra asks, as he keeps a report of the Institute of Economic Studies (IEE), that without touching the basic public services, they reduce up to 60,000 million euros that today go to expenses that do not produce anything. “That’s where you have to work,” Riojan politician pointed out.
Hours earlier, at the government control session, Feijo’s ‘number two’ warned Pedro Sánchez that the independentistas want him at the head of the government because with him “they are stronger.” “They don’t elect him for his worth, they want him for his weakness,” he continued, not without considering that the “success” of the independentistas “necessarily involves a president who is willing to undermine the institutions from within.” “And you meet their expectations,” he finished.
