The draft Budgets will enter the Congress on Monday, where a very complicated procedure awaits. PP and Citizens have harshly charged against public accounts and the government's main partner, Unido Podemos, does not even guarantee their support.
The leader of the PP, Pablo Casado, has assured this Friday that the project of the Government for 2019 is "tremendously bad and lethal for the interests of the Spanish economy". Without providing more data, he stressed that if approved, it would be a "catastrophe for Spain". Casado has focused on the tax increases, which he blamed for "paying an infinite electoral campaign." The leader of the PP pointed out that this is also the opinion of the European Commission, the IMF and the OECD.
Citizens, on the other hand, considers a "humiliation" that the future of the Budgets is decided between the independentistas. José Manuel Villegas, general secretary of Citizens, regretted that the government is "with a hole of 10,000 million and the only solution they find to finance it is to strangle taxes on the middle and working class". And he added: "They go in the opposite direction to what Spain needs, they endanger the recovery and the creation of employment".
Pablo Echenique, secretary of organization of Podemos, warned that the support of the purple formation to the public accounts is not insured because it has detected 11 breaches of the pact signed with the PSOE last October. Among them, the regulation of rental prices and the reduction of electricity prices. Neither, they say, there is a descent for the self-employed. From the PNV point out that the Catalan parties must choose between "between Sanchez and those who supported him or the possibility of a married, an Abascal and a Rivera. And, they say, that happens, at this moment, for some Budgets of the State ".
