Pablo Iglesias and Ángel Gabilondo discuss the tax increase. If the United We Can candidate maintains his position in favor of raising taxes on the richest, the Socialist says that is not the solution at the moment. Iglesias highlights the reduction in taxes on the self-employed in vulnerable situations and defends the recovery of wealth tax and inheritance tax, for those with assets of more than one million euros, outside residence usual, and for estates of one million euros, respectively.

Although Gabilondo says he agrees with Iglesias’ remarks in the comprehensive approach, he puts forward Minister Calviño’s idea that “until Spain recovers economically and in employment, it it is not necessary to touch taxes “.

I don’t like them stealing from us and we keep voting for them. “But, faced with these comments, Ángel Gabilondo maintains his position on increasing taxes:” At the moment, no. “
