In communist countries, before they collapse, there is always a curious phenomenon: taxes increase in an excessive way.
The only way for their rulers to earn income is to punish their citizens with increasingly suffocating tax burdens.
Apart from nationalizing successful companies to manage them themselves, with the catastrophe that this entails.
And all this is given by the refusal they express towards any private initiative.
Mr. Mayor has been on the verge of managing to raise once again the fiscal pressure he puts on freelancers, businesses and neighbors in general.
With pretended increases of up to double in some taxes, he has again found a front wall exerted by the votes against the VOX team, and the rest of the plenary.
Given the result of the full vote that knocked down his proposals, Mr. Mayor starred in another of his usual annoys perhaps because he does not want to understand that Totana is governed by 21 councilors, not 6.
In VOX we are not willing to allow you to convert Totana into a communist system in which neighbors have to do with surprise that the tax burden with which they punish everyone raises, for example as intended, the minimum occupancy rate of the public highway, to double.
People who voted for you in good faith and those who did not vote for you, also in good faith, we do not deserve surprises like these increases on which you did not mention a word in your election campaign.
If the totaneros had been advised that their intentions were to raise taxes, perhaps the result would have been different.
And it is curious that, however, he promised the approval of the General Plan in 6 months in case of being elected mayor of Totana.
And of this topic, no trace 7 months later as we all know
We propose the approval of the General Plan, the disappearance of legal insecurity so that companies do not flee and give work to totaneros ... In short, do not punish with intolerable tax increases.
In VOX we will not be any impediment as long as proposals are presented to improve the life of our totaneros neighbors.
Provided that the initiatives involve progress and improvement of the economy and society of our municipality.
We encourage Mr. Mayor to discover that, by encouraging the establishment of companies in totanero land, for example, he will earn income without oppressing us all with tax penalties.
María Dolores García Martínez and Javier Clemente Sánchez Mulero, councilors of VOX Totana
