Patxi López joins UP and defends that the tax on the rich be permanent


The socialist spokesman in the Congress of Deputies, patxi lopezhas argued that the new tax on large fortunes that the Government plans to apply from 2023 is not temporary, as announced by the Ministry of Finance, but permanent, as United We Can want. “We have made it temporary, but if you ask me for my personal opinion I would like it not to be temporary, like in other countries“, he said in an interview on Onda Cero.

In this way, Patxi López agrees with United We Can, which has been requesting the creation of a permanent tax on large fortunes for some time, and disagrees with what was established by the Minister of Finance, Maria Jesus Monteroof the PSOE, which last September announced the creation of this new tax from 2023 on a provisional basis.

The tax on large fortunes, which is pending final approval, plans to levy a rate of between 1.7% and 3.5% on assets of more than three million euros, some 23,000 taxpayers, although the tax will be deductible in the regional heritage tax, with which it will especially affect the citizens of the regions that have it subsidized. On the other hand, the socialist spokesman has said that the trans law could be approved before the end of the year in Congressalthough “nobody can guarantee this”.

“The question of a law is not to make it fast but to make it well, and in this case we can make it fast and well”, he added. And about the tension between Podemos and the vice president Yolanda Diazat the head of the Sumar project and who has received harsh reproaches from the former leader of the purple formation, paul churcheshas confessed to feeling “pity”. “That they themselves are making the bed is not the best thing”, has commented. In his opinion, “what is to the left of the PSOE should rally behind someone to receive this vote” in the elections, since “When the left is divided, the one who wins is always the right”.
