The president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, continues with her frontal confrontation against the Government of Pedro Sánchez for the fiscal harmonization that the Executive wants to study to unify the taxes assigned to the autonomous communities. The crusade includes the independentistas after it was ERC who proposed, via an amendment to the general state budgets, a bilateral table to address this issue. The Madrid president again referred to the issue this Wednesday, making a comparison between the cost of the new emergency hospital and taxes in Catalonia. The leader of the PP has launched that their own taxes of the Generalitat make Catalans pay “34 Zendales” a year.
Ayuso responded to the criticisms of the ERC spokesperson in Congress, Gabriel Rufián, after the inauguration of the Isabel Zendal Nurse Hospital, and his words that Madrid welcomes large fortunes and companies for being a “tax bar”. “Not all capitals are the economic engine of their country. There are many countries in Europe as an example,” he pointed out in the first place. Next, he pointed out that “the independence movement has to go very badly to always be putting Madrid in the object of all its wrath and blaming the people of Madrid, after the damage they have experienced.” In his opinion, “it is a great pettiness.”
Another of the examples used, has indicated that the independentistas “spend 1,700 million per year in independentista actions.” Only in TV3 303 million euros are spent, which is equivalent to three Zendales, “he insisted.” Let’s see if it is the independence movement the one who steals and see if it is clear that in Madrid we are not going to raise taxes and less to pay them for the business, “he has settled.
Ayuso has defended the construction of the Isabel Zendal Nurse Hospital, which he inaugurated this Tuesday: “I am clear about how much a life is worth. For me it is priceless and that is why that hospital is there,” he said. In a statement to the media, after inaugurating the Puerta del Sol Bethlehem, Ayuso stressed that in Madrid “many people have died”, and even for days and weeks “500 people died every day.”
“One night we had 900 deceased. There I swore, and we swore as an autonomous government, to do the impossible, whatever it was, so as not to experience those situations again, so as not to have our people on the ground or in chairs”, noted below. The head of the regional executive has argued that the region has experienced “various viruses, epidemics, air accidents, attacks” and, therefore, what they want is “to decongest hospitals, protect health workers and take care of our citizens.”
Aguado, on Zendal: “I hope we don’t have to use it but it’s good to have it”
The vice president of the Community of Madrid, Ignacio Aguado, defended this Wednesday at the press conference of the Government Council that the emergency hospital Nurse Isabel Zendal does not have operating rooms because “it is not designed for surgical interventions” since it was designed “exclusively “for” pandemics “, based on Ifema’s experience.
“It is not comparable with any hospital that has been built in Madrid or in the world,” said the vice president, justifying that there are no operating rooms. Aguado has insisted that for this reason he will not have “a stable squad” since he is not assimilated to La Paz, Ramón y Cajal or Gregorio Marañón.
Aguado has disfigured the criticism of this issue despite the fact that it was the Madrid president Isabel Díaz Ayuso who suggested that it could be useful for catastrophes such as an airplane accident, something that would require those spaces to operate. The Madrid vice president has defended that the Zendal will serve to decongest health if there is a third wave.
“I hope we don’t have to use it but it’s good to have it,” said the vice president of an infrastructure that has cost at least more than 100 million euros.
