Ulla Andersson (V) on welfare: S prioritizes tax cuts


Every third municipality cuts its budget in welfare this year compared to last year, shows a survey conducted by SVT. According to Fredrik Olovsson (S), chairman of the Finance Committee, there are great needs in the future. "That is why we will prioritize welfare in every budget debate," he says in SVT's Aktuellt.

The Left Party's economic policy spokesperson Ulla Andersson believes that the Social Democrats focused on lowering taxes instead of securing welfare.

- This is tragic. Therefore, we have acted and demanded extra money. The Riksdag decided on this last week and unfortunately Fredrik Olovsson's party did not vote for the extra money. These savings that are happening now are a consequence of the Social Democrats prioritizing tax cuts before welfare, she says.
