"line from the two regionpolitiker if the equalisation system"
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"the DEBATE the President of the Region of Stockholm Irene Svenonius don't like that there are proposals to make the equalisation system more fair. She talks about that the government sees the Stockholm region as its ”private atm”. Is it really so?"
"We may on good grounds conclude that the metropolitan area since a long time have seen the northern part of the country as their own atm. In skogslänen has the central government, with Stockholm as the starting point, in hundreds of years downloaded cheap raw materials in the form of minerals, forests and hydro – electric power now also wind power. "
"About 90 percent of the country's hydropower is produced in skogslänen. All taxation goes to the state and profits to the companies engaged in the business. Add to this the fact that the water power now creates few jobs locally. Even when it comes to the forest harbours a large part of the burden of taxation in metropolitan areas, because the owners often are written there. "
"the equalisation system aims to give all parts of the country about the same conditions to give the citizens the equivalent of welfare and service. Today, gaps have been so large that a review is necessary. A realization of the proposal from the Kostnadsutjämningsutredningen is a bit on the way."
"In our province is the level of taxation in the vattenkraftskommunen Ragunda, for example, at 34,42£. This at the same time as Stockholm is 29,82 € and in addition have lowered the tax this year. "
"The average level of taxation in the skogslänen is 1,90 sek per hundred higher than the rest of the country. The 1.7 million inhabitants of the skogslänen pay about seven billion dollars more than what you would have done if you had the average tax burden."
"Utjämningsystemet in need of reform. At the same time, we hope that the ”comprehensive tax reform” as promised in the Januariavtalet also contributes to ”today's growing economic inequality” is smoothed. The taxation of hydroelectric power, but also of other natural resources, should regionaliseras. "
"We are asking for a geographical differentiation of social security contributions, and a write-off of student loans as a means to provide all parts of the country a level playing field. That this works can be and see who is visiting our western neighbor Norway."
"the Sweden – including the Stockholm region – serves that the entire country grows. It should also Irene Svenonius realize if she broadens the horizons outside their region and are thinking of where today's ”atm machine” really is. "
