During the early hours of Friday, the Government achieved its objective and the Chamber of Deputies again insisted on the approval of the Income Tax that the Senate had rejected. In this way, nearly 800 thousand workers will once again pay this tax on their salaries, while the Government lowers taxes for the rich by reducing the Personal Property tax rate. A real theft by the caste.

The sanction in Deputies was achieved with 136 votes in favor, 118 against and 3 abstentions. After the vote, the Unión por la Patria bloc stated that their intention is to judicialize the issue since they maintain that the reinstatement of the tax for the fourth category is unconstitutional. Deputy Sergio Palazzo, head of the banking union (one of the most affected by this measure) anticipated that they are “working with lawyers to present this unconstitutionality.”

The complicit role of the Peronist union leaders in the sanction of the Base Law with the removal of the street has already been analyzed in this newspaper, a true gesture of collaboration for the Government. It has also been analyzed how, despite the speeches against the restitution of the tax, the unions did nothing to prevent it, leaving everything in the hands of the parliamentary process.

But what has been little said is that on the return of the project to the Chamber of Deputies, the Catamarca deputies of the Union for the Homeland bloc They changed their votes and supported the ruling party’s project.These are Fernanda Ávila, Dante López Rodríguez and Sebastián Noblega, who They respond to the governor of their province Raúl Jalil. In addition, Deputy Silvana Micaela Ginocchio, the governor’s wife and also a member of the UP bloc, abstained from voting.

The people of Catamarca join the long list of Peronists who lend their explicit collaboration to support the measures of the government of Javier Milei. Something that is not a new fact, but has occurred since the beginning of this government with the incorporation into its ranks of leaders such as Daniel Scioli, the break in January by the deputies of Tucumán who answer to Governor Jaldo to support the Executive’s projects in the House of Representatives, and the long list of 1,867 officials of the previous Government who joined the new libertarian administration without any contradiction.

Beyond the opposition speeches of Unión por la Patria, the people of Catamarca will continue to occupy their seats within the bloc despite their explicit collaboration with Milei on this point. A new contribution from Peronism to the precarious balance that supports Milei and his plan of hunger and misery, and which once again shows the need to overcome him as a political option if we really want to defeat him.
