The deputy spokesman of the Socialist parliamentary group, Begoña García Retegui, deplored the declarations of President Ramon Luis Valcarcel, who spoke on the implications of the "lack of economic foresight of the Government of Spain in the regional economy."

The deputy said "back in utter disregard to citizens, but especially those who are faring worse by the crisis, such as unemployed, freelancers and small businesses, the regional government is dedicated to making opposition to the Government of Spain instead of engaging in work in the field of its competence to respond to citizens and to efficiently manage public services.

In short, "rowing in the same direction to check out this serious economic crisis."

He recalled that the forecasts made by the regional government on the taxes that fall directly manages the Community, such as property transfer and stamp duty are "false, since in the first two months of 2010, do not cover even 8 % of predicted for the whole year "and rely solely on their activities in relation to income."

Failure of all the forecasts

Something happened in 2009, "when they failed all expectations assigned taxes on income, while state revenues increased by more than 250 million euros as a result of the new model of regional financing.

"With the fall of these taxes assigned, the regional government in the lurch has left thousands of suppliers and thousands of organizations and associations that have had to put money in your pocket or lay off workers for lack of payment of the regional government" .

Still, "the government has continued Valcárcel wasting and wasting in advertising, propaganda, entertainment, travel and sponsorships without which put a stop to this waste."

In short, he added that the regional government "punishes those who create and maintain employment and need public money to provide essential services, and waste and squander the money of Murcia to finish, as usual, blaming the government of Zapatero.

Yes, take the money with one hand and, in turn, exacerbates the political criticism, "he said.

"
