The PSOE will agitate for the 28-M the tax harmonization against the 'dumping' of Ayuso and Moreno

The PSOE’s framework program for the regional elections claims tax harmonization as a measure to fight against tax rebates such as wealth in Madrid and Andalusia. Sources from Ferraz point out that it is about fighting against the dumping tax due to tax differences between CCAAs, in reference the Madrid president, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, and the Andalusian Juanma Moreno. The measure, included in the program of the regional elections of 28-M, ratified this Saturday in the Federal Committee of the PSOE, defends the need to “guarantee the same tax treatment to all citizens, regardless of the place where they live or act “, to “achieve an optimal balance in the exercise of the regulatory powers of the Autonomous Communities on taxes so that taxation does not distort decisions of the vital projects of citizens or the investment decisions of companies”.

Fiscal harmonization would be for the Socialists one of the common lines in the pending reform of the regional financing system. One of the few points for this reform shared by all socialist baronssince regarding the calculation method they maintain the classic differences between the communities with the most populations and those with a smaller and more dispersed demography.

In the last PSOE congress, the socialist federations of Madrid, Catalonia, Valencia and the Balearic Islands already promoted a reform to equalize taxes from the CCAAs. The association between Tax Reform and that of regional financing was included in several of the tabled amendments by the socialists of the Mediterranean territories. Now, this proposal is embodied in the framework program of the autonomous communities of 28-M, which has been in charge of coordinating and presenting in the Federal Committee the president of Extremadura and secretary of Autonomous Policy of the party, Guillermo Fernández Vara. Inside of the objective of confronting models with the PPthe pattern of the campaign set by Pedro Sánchez in the last Federal Committee before 28-Mthis flag will guide one of the main issues in terms of taxation.

The central Executive also opted to create this new framework in a future tax reform. However, the commitment to this reform, included in the recovery plan agreed with Brussels, has been postponed due to the economic turbulence derived from the Russian invasion of Ukraine. These milestones have not been incorporated into the regulatory annual plan for 2023, the last of the mandate, which includes the actions planned before dissolving the Cortes for the call for general elections.

In terms of co-governance, the text reduces some of the party’s expectations to leave the territorial debate on a secondary level. In this way, co-governance is limited to issues of a cultural nature without references to a deepening of decentralization much less to a federal state model. Faced with this, the focus is placed on measures related to deepening territorial cohesion, reinforcing public services and the welfare state. Despite this, the first secretary of the PSC, Salvador Illadid show during his speech behind closed doors at the Federal Committee this Saturday, according to sources close to him, the need to “modernize institutions with co-governance mechanisms”.

Sánchez showed his fangs again against the “economic powers” to emphasize his independence from them

The President of the Government and leader of the Socialists, Pedro Sánchez, focused his open speech before the Federal Committee on confronting the PSOE project with that of the right and the extreme right. The conquest of rights and freedoms for the “majorities”, which summarizes the motto “rule for the people”against a right that Sánchez drew as synonymous with “cuts” and political arm of the “economic powers”. In this line, he insisted on showing himself as a guarantee of “social peace”, looking back from 2018, in the face of the social and territorial fracture during the previous popular governments.

“Social peace”, therefore, as repeated up to three times, against the mobilizations in the Rajoy stage, with general strikes by workers and sectoral strikes by students and other protests. In a more rallies tone that of a general secretary addressing the Federal Committee, Sánchez returned to show his fangs against the “economic powers” to emphasize their independence of them against a PP more conditioned by defending its privileged interests.

The social democratic model against the neoliberal one of “freezing pensions, scholarships, precarious employment and cutting the welfare state”

“The economic right and its political and media terminals does not want Spain to advance”, he came to reproach. “They do not like that there is a progressive governmentand above all they don’t like the policies that this progressive government puts in place,” he added. It was for this reason that he presented himself as a victim and regretted that if they are “attacking the Executive” it is because “rules for the majority and does not bow down to the powerful”.

Sánchez has associated the requests of early elections with a brake on the policies of protection of the middle and working class, which would suit both the political and economic right, according to their terminology. A scenario that not only distanced, but also used to build the argument that with a change of government they would return to “cuts to the welfare state.” The social democratic model against the neoliberal one of “freezing pensions, scholarships, precarious employment and cutting the welfare state.”
