"One of the conditions for the Conservatives to be with and discuss a tax reform with the government and other parties is that the total skattestrycket have down. And the party wants, according to party leader Ulf Kristersson, continue to lower the marginal tax rates."
"– fiscal reform has no intrinsic value, it must solve real problems, " says Ulf Kristersson at a press conference when the party presents its response to the government's spring fiscal policy bill and proposes a course forward for the years 2020-2022."
"He'd hate to talk taxes that the Conservatives would be willing to raise in a reform, at the same time as the party, in its budget proposal claims that more money is needed in the health services, police and defence."
"– We cut in spending, " says Ulf Kristersson."
"According to Kristersson and the economic policy spokesperson Elisabeth Svantesson has the Conservatives already set to work with a tax reform, a work which shall last for the year. An end date is not."
"– It is obvious to us that a tax reform should be fully funded. There will be dynamic effects, but we do not intend to count. A reform should have a lower tax burden. It will require some increases in taxes, but also a greater utgiftsreform, " says Svantesson."
