Seville (EFE).- More than 800,000 people in Spain have requested the 200-euro check for vulnerable families in less than 48 hours, intended for taxpayers with incomes of less than 27,000 euros per year, as reported this Friday by the Minister of Finance, María Jesus Montero.
In statements to journalists in Seville, Montero has defended that inflation and protecting the most vulnerable has been the most important concern in recent months for the central government and has assured that they will continue to be “very aware” of the rise in prices, ” acting accordingly.”
However, given Podemos’s proposal to subsidize the basic food basket by 14%, it has maintained that any proposal that is put on the table must be “viable” in its application and not be “something that generates expectations or raises a road map that does not know how to do it, how it can be implemented”.
He has argued that “it is as important to have the design of a law as its application”, something that has already happened with the law of yes is yes.
Montero has defended that the Spanish economy “continues to be robust”, employment is being created and “inflation is being controlled”, so that the economic policy “is the correct one”.
“If measures have to be adopted in the future, they will continue to be adopted, as to date, but they must be measures that can be applied,” warned the Minister of Finance.
