Stockholm is not the country's atm
"Stockholm is not the country's atm"

"Debater: All except our region is nettobidragstagare"

"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. Already in the fall when the contents of the latest skatteutjämningsutredningen became public was the criticism extensive to a punitive tax on the Stockholm region. Nevertheless now the government and civilminister Ardalan Shekarabi (S) to resurrect the proposal to forcefully drain the Stockholm region on resources."

"the Stockholm Region would lose 1.6 billion if the proposal becomes a reality. The Region of Stockholm paid 2018 1.2 billion, net, in skatteutjämning. Overall, this means that we lose 2.8 billion of our regional tax. It poses a threat to the necessary expansions in the region's health care and public transport. "

"the Loss of 1.6 billion for the Region of Stockholm is more than what it cost to run Södertälje hospital, and correspond to the heltidslöner for the 2 000 nurses."

"the equalisation system is so deviously constructed that it is only the inhabitants of a region which contributes net to the system today, namely the Stockholm Region. All others are nettobidragstagare. Already in the day therefore the Stockholm Region take out extra taxes to immediately send the money on to other regions."

"we Now want to civilminister Shekarabi increase the burden on the locals by turning on the thumbscrew with 1.6 billion sek, which corresponds to 25 cents on the tax. The proposed change in the equalisation system is equivalent to 3 000 in taxes for the average family. "

"the Stockholm region is Europe's fastest growing capital cities. Every year grows the region with close to 40 000 new inhabitants. We need our skattekronor for build-out of both healthcare and public transport in order to have the opportunity to meet the growth. Our ability to do this affects the whole country's prosperity."

"Unfortunately, deals with the state-level Stockholm Region the elephant in the room even when it comes to the national plan for infrastructure. The state Investments in the Stockholm region is 15 per cent lower than in the past. This is despite a great need for transport of both people and varoru002Fgods in climate-smart ways when we are quickly becoming more and more. "

"the Relations within the county, but also surrounding counties are disadvantaged in relation to the needs of the commuting opportunities."

"It is, however, at the same time extremely important to me that the whole Sweden works, and have well-functioning public service. I myself grew up in a rural area, on an island. But it must be possible to hold two thoughts in your head at the same time. Depopulation as well as the dispersed settlements distance and a sparse population in villages and communities costs. But it costs also grow quickly. Both growth regions and sparsely populated region will need adequate resources to cope with their challenges and needs."

"however, It must be a state responsibility to ensure that the municipalities and regions that need support get it. The responsibility may not lie on the taxpayers in the Stockholm region."

"To the municipal - and regionskatt levied locally should go to something other than just the own region's or the municipality's operations are, in principle, incorrectly and contrary to the whole idea of local powers of taxation. State tax revenue can, however, be used for the leveling of regional disparities, ensure the level of public service in the communities where the taxpayers are too few, and perhaps fewer."

"the Locals are already contributing greatly to the state's cash. The region's inhabitants today account for half of state tax revenues, despite the fact that we represent only a quarter of the country's population. Use the kassakistan to give the state utjämningsmiljarder."

"The economic leveling is already far-reaching in Sweden. That there are variations across the country in resources to the welfare of the core, therefore depends also on how local politicians to prioritize and act. There must be a pressure to economise with taxpayers ' money."

"To constantly demand more and more in skatteutjämning of those who live in the Stockholm region is completely unreasonable. Civilminister Shekarabi must, therefore, stop to see the Region of Stockholm as the government's own atm."
