Isabel Díaz Ayuso, president of the Community of Madrid, won the hearts of Mallorcans in a parliament that was often interrupted by a round of applause addressed to Madrid politicians, who insisted on the need to “recover the freedom that has snatched the left. Madrid is recognition of what is well done and it is respect for work and encouragement. That is why we lower taxes whenever we have the opportunity to do so,” said the president, who recalled that “raising is not governing. To govern is to manage.
«I want to thank Palma for its wonderful reception. A thank you that I extend to the whole of Mallorca and to the rest of the Balearic Islands”, Ayuso said to introduce himself, adding that “it is always a pleasure to return to this privileged place in the Mediterranean. Due to its nature, its Sierra de Tramontana, its towns full of heritage, that turquoise water, unique places to eat well and with recipes from the land… In short, it is not obvious that I enjoy the islands every time I have the opportunity, ”he joked to the applause of the audience.
Ayuso assured that he had felt heat in the street: «They say that the Majorcan is serious and not very talkative at first, but I have always found myself here at home, welcomed with affection and before people with a cheerful, vital and elegant spirit. With own style. What I have noticed the most the last few times I have come, and it has caught my attention, has been discouragement, a desire for change and enthusiasm for new policies in the Balearic Islands whose people overcome difficulties with an attitude different from that of their regional government, with thriving, liberal and open proposals for tourism, employment and culture.
And I hear them say “with what we have”, “with what we are”, “with the things that could be done…”, how it is not taken advantage of».
«Madrid is recognition of what is well done and it is respect for work and encouragement. That is why we lower taxes whenever we have the opportunity to do so. We have been like this for almost 20 years, continuously reducing the tax burden until we have achieved that each taxpayer has saved more than 17,000 in this time. With my government, each Madrilenian has saved an average of 6,700 euros in taxes. We are the only region in Spain without its own taxes », he said.
“It is a matter of political will, respect for the efforts of the taxpayer and effective management of public resources. Collecting is not governing. To govern is to manage. And it is that society, from left to right, wants to be free, take control of their lives and be inspired by new projects, concerns, illusions. And add their prosperity to that of the Spaniards as a whole so that each one, from their town, city or province, contributes to a great country, our wonderful Spain”, he added.
