• Minimum Income.The Government of Pedro Sánchez delves into the preferential treatment of the Basque Country and Navarra

The Independent Authority for Fiscal Responsibility (AIReF) advises the Government that transferring the management of the Minimum Vital Income to the communities, as it has already done with the Basque Country and Navarra, may generate new inequalities in view of the regions' ability to apply the measure. "Probably a management of the communities endowed with greater proximity", but " this transfer in management cannot mean differences in the implementation of the measure, " said the president of the organization, Cristina Herrero, in the Finance Committee of Congress.

" You have to be careful so that the transfer does not imply different coverage, " Herrero said, adding that "if these precautions are met, there should be no problems" and thus complete the response that Ciudadanos has made to the aforementioned decision of the Government to transfer the management of the measure to the Executives of the Basque Country and Navarra but maintaining that of the rest of the territory.

This measure, which was precisely the predecessor of Herrero at AIReF and today the Minister of Social Security, José Luis Escrivá, tried to justify pointing out the "uniqueness" of these two territories, providing a new favorable treatment towards Navarra and the Basque Country that could even go against one of the reasons for being of the IMV itself.

"In Spain there is a level of inequality higher than the European average, which leads us to the need to create an IMV that already existed in the Autonomous Communities but which was very unequal. We have the Basque Country and Navarra at one extreme and then we have other Autonomous Communities in which that income does not exceed 300 euros a month, "Herrero has already explained initially. And therefore, " any attempt to homogenize, welcome ," he added.

Two more tenths of deficit

The head of the Fiscal Authority has also explained that the approval of the minimum income represents an increase of one tenth in the deficit expected for this year. In addition, the higher health expenditure of the hope will add a new tenth, with which the new scenarios are as follows: in the most benevolent, the deviation will go to 11.1%, while in the most negative the data would be up to 14%. In either case, figures much higher than the 10.3% expected by the Government .
