Accuses Feijóo of practicing "political cynicism"
BARCELONA, July 31. (EUROPEAN PRESS) -
The Minister of Finance and Public Function and Deputy Secretary General of the PSOE, María Jesús Montero, has assured that she does not rule out reaching an agreement with the PP to approve the new banking tax, and has stated that she also hopes to reach an agreement with the PNV.
In an interview in La Vanguardia collected this Sunday by Europa Press, Montero has maintained that the leader of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, has not yet opposed it: "I do not have to think that the PP does not believe that it is convenient to ask for a greater effort to those who can have a greater benefit.
She has stated that she hopes that the tax will have sufficient support: "I have no doubt about ERC and the groups on the left. I am convinced that they will support it because they have always asked us for more effort in fiscal matters from large corporations."
He has said that it is fair to redistribute the extraordinary profits of the financial entities: "Here we are not going against anyone, but rather a balanced distribution of the burdens that cannot fall solely and exclusively on the domestic economies".
And he has asked "that they are not the usual ones who pay for the crisis", defending that it is necessary to finance the gasoline discount, the drop in the price of the electricity bill, and other measures without implying a risk for sustainability. of public accounts.
Asked about the dialogue table between the Government and the Generalitat, Montero said that "a very important effort has been made to dialogue with Catalonia and maintain the constructive spirit".
And he has reproached Junts for not participating in it: "I wish more people would sit at the table and we have claimed it from the other Govern party. They have refused. From Junts they prefer to continue with the confrontation," he lamented.
Montero has described as very important the "dejudicialization of the Catalan question" and has pointed out that, in his eyes, any law that one does not ideologically share cannot be immediately brought to court.
Finally, asked if she is in favor of a pardon in relation to the ERE ruling, Montero stressed that "Chaves and Griñán have not profited personally, neither they nor their families. They have not taken a euro of public money" , while they are paying just for sinners, in their opinion.
He has accused the PP of counting votes even when there are no scheduled elections, and of making noise to provoke an "asymmetric disaffection" and that left-wing voters do not go to the polls, in his words.
"For right-wing voters, the noise does not cause the same detachment from the vote as for left-wing voters. Progressive people do not like political life to be permanently contaminated with thick lines, disqualifications, confrontation," he said. .
Along these lines, she has pointed out Feijóo for practicing "political cynicism" for talking about a recession, according to her in an interested way: "She says that we are at the door of a recession. That is playing tricks. It is trying to transfer something that does not happen in the variables that are expressed", he emphasized.
