Zaragoza (EFE) – The President of Aragon, Javier Lamban, has announced an aid to families who need it to mitigate the effects of inflation, in the amount of at least 200 euros.

At the plenary meeting of the Cortes, Lamban clarified that the Ministry of Citizenship is already working on the technical and budgetary steps to be taken by the government to activate these measures.

This will be an aid of at least 200 euros so that families who need it can cover part of the income cuts that inflation entails. It will cover 17,000 beneficiaries.

The President pointed out that the competence of the community in this area is very limited, and expressed his concern about the consequences war in ukraine. He also advocated for a grand pact to revive the spirit that, during the pandemic, led to the signing of Aragonese strategy for economic and social recovery.

The pretreat “excites zeal”

And although he considered that the pre-election situation “excites zeal” in some parties and “they do not know how to use their heads”, he decided to open a discussion on how to fight inflation and help companies, including in terms of taxation.

Finance Minister Carlos Pérez Anadon will immediately contact all parties to try to “feel” the possibility of an agreement. Lamban will personally do this with representatives because it needs to be fast so that it can be reflected in Aragon’s 2023 budgets.

In turn, the press secretary of the PP Mar Vaquero stressed that the prices for electricity or the consumer basket and fuel began to escalate even before the war in Ukraine, and the PSOE “did nothing.” He chided the Aragonese government for dismissing the agreements his group had offered him for eight months on health, taxation or energy issues as “sectarianism.”

New tax cut request

These include tax cuts. as most regional presidents have already donenot only those of PP, also regulated PSOE, while Lambán, as Vaquero said, would set the record, making the Aragonese “the Spaniards who pay the most in taxes”. This government also put an end to the “mantra” that the more taxes, the better the services, because Aragon has the worst public services.

Daniel Pérez Calvo of Cs insisted that prices were “out of control” and that the situation was “worrisome” and said he was focusing on what concerns society.

In this sense, he stated the need to “reformulate” the accounts and think about the 2023 budget for “contingencies, saving thousands of families” in a vulnerable situation. He defended measures such as deflation of the regional section of the personal income tax, a surcharge on the self-employed quota, guarantee lines for companies or moratoriums on the return of ICO loans activated during the pandemic.

Vox spokesman Santiago Morón questioned the usefulness of maintaining an “autonomous megastructure” if it fails to do anything to replace some of the purchasing power lost by families and businesses, and defended tax cuts.

Inequality and poverty

IU’s Alvaro Sanz came out on the defensive, ensuring that this crisis “will not be paid for by conventional crises.” He warned that Aragon was “highly unequal” so that 14,800 Aragonese accumulated 73% of Aragon’s GDP in 2020, €25,600 million.

Of the pro-government groups, Vicente Guillén (PSOE) attacked the PP, whom he accused of living “by speaking badly of Spain and Aragon” and of “frustration and anxiety” because “they have turned to ashes “. Marta de Santos of Podemos assured that thanks to her party, this crisis is not like the previous one.

Joaquin Palacín of the CHA argued that self-government was necessary to deal with successive crises and the need to move forward in the new funding system. Finally, PAR’s Jesús Guerrero spoke about the measures being promoted by the Ministry of Industry, led by Vice President Arturo Allaga.
