El senador del Partido Popular, Pedro Rollán

He gives as an example the Community of Madrid and the rest of the communities governed by the PP, where the tax reduction contributes to “boost the economy” despite “being on target” of the minister of María Jesús Montero

The senator of the Popular Parliamentary Group in the Senate for Madrid, Pedro Rollán, has addressed the Minister of Finance to affirm that "where the PSOE governs, all there is is a tax hell." This has been shown by the Madrid senator, in a question addressed to the Minister of Finance, on the reason why the Government does not understand that there are communities that lower the ceded taxes, achieve the objectives of budgetary stability and create wealth.

Throughout his speech, the popular senator has criticized that the formula of raising taxes has "dire consequences" such as "unemployment, poverty and inequality."

In this regard, he explained that the more than 22 million Spaniards living in Galicia, Murcia, Andalusia, Castilla y León, Ceuta and Madrid have benefited from the tax cut, “even if that means being on the target of threats of tax homogenization of the minister ”. In his opinion, this punishment not only falls on the governments led by the PP, but "on its citizens, which is much more serious."

Thus, Pedro Rollán has taken the opportunity to congratulate the regional presidents of the PP and has "encouraged" them to continue with the tax cut. "The popular ones assume the responsibility of government and do not understand the tax policy as an end in itself, but as a tool that contributes to boost the economy and generate employment to guarantee citizens the best public services," he said.


At this point, the GPP senator recalled that despite the intentions of the Ministry of Finance to “put sticks on the wheel based on raising taxes so that we are less competitive,” Madrid leads job creation. In addition, the Community of Madrid led in 2019 the creation of companies with 23.3% of the national total; the economy grew 3%; Madrid is the region where the lowest income is taxed by personal income tax, among others.

"In Madrid, it is no accident, but causation, that we proudly contribute 70% of the Public Services Guarantee Fund," he said.

To conclude, he stressed that it is "incomprehensible" that instead of inviting the rest of the communities to join these initiatives, "they insist that we be less competitive with more taxes."
