València, Sep 23 (EFE).- The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, assured this Friday that, “as soon as possible”, Spain will “bend the curve of inflation”, as it has made for that of the coronavirus, and defended that the “great uncertainties” derived from the war in Ukraine are confronted “with the awareness of being on the right side of history”.

Sánchez stressed during his speech in Valencia at elDiario.es’ tenth anniversary event that when peace returns to Ukraine and Europe, Spain will have known how to prepare and take advantage of this period, and will be more competitive for having promoted the work “dignity”, of the territories, of the students or of the scientific personnel.

He claimed that, unlike those who “have always defended and continue to defend that in Spain and all its territories you can only be competitive by lowering wages, reducing rights, while giving tax gifts to the richest minority”, in a few years You will see that “there is no wealth more solid than that of shared well-being”.

“No greater progress than achieving justice and dignity, in addition to higher growth rates,” said Sánchez, who argued against the “diametrically different” response given to the crisis a while ago. ten years, which paid the social majority to the detriment of the benefit of a minority, and that which is granted to the current one.

Faced with the response based on “neoliberal dogmatism”, he indicated that the paradigm of social democracy, focused on strengthening the welfare state, has allowed Spain to currently have more workers than before the pandemic.

The President assured that at the start of the containment of the pandemic he had given himself “the battle” to forge in Europe a “strong and united” response to this crisis, and it has been demonstrated that policies are carried out in defense of the social majority.

Sánchez pointed out that, where previously there was a bank bailout, European governments are now considering an extraordinary tax on large companies, financial entities or large energy companies, so that there is a redistribution of effort and than those who contributed the most to fund the welfare state.

He claimed that where there was an indiscriminate VAT increase, there is now a “fair distribution of the burden” so that the middle and working class are no longer sacrificed, and where there is “a lack of solidarity and a north-south division”, today a joint response with the supply of the covid vaccine.

“Where there were amnesties and tax giveaways for the wealthy, there will be tax reforms that ensure that those who have the most contribute to public finances to have a much stronger welfare state,” Sánchez insisted.

The president underlined that in the past the policies of exit from the crisis left a triple fracture: that of the “brutal cuts” in the social services, the rescue of the banks and the tax amnesty of the big fraudsters, and the “unbearable corruption”. , like the one who lived, he said, in the Valencian Community.

Finally, he stressed that the progressive coalition government does not postpone social conquests, does not let territorial disputes escalate, dialogues instead of imposing and does not seek excuses to postpone duties.
