Feijóo recharges before Sánchez his ideological speech against the 'trans law': "Stop bothering good people"


Hard crossover in the Senate between the President of the Government and the popular leader. "The PP defends those at the top," cries the socialist leader, who warns the head of the opposition about his team: "When you get up, look to see if you feel anything in your back"

Crossing of ideological background in the Senate less than three months after the first great litmus test for Pedro Sánchez and Alberto Núñez Feijóo, the regional and municipal elections.

The leader of the PP, who only has this opportunity once a month in the Upper House to directly confront the President of the Government, has changed the axis of his speech to launch this Tuesday a strong criticism, with a conservative vision, on all the laws of Equality and in particular the

trans law,

which he has directly attacked for allowing transsexuals to decide what sex they are going to have, something that places Spain, according to the Government, in the European vanguard.

Engrossed in his criticism of the norm, Feijóo has finished off with a phrase that he has outraged the bench on the left: "Stop bothering good people, stop meddling in the lives of others."

And Sánchez replied: "I did not know that the extension of rights bothered good people."

Everything came into this kind of mini-debate on the state of the nation in 15 minutes, from Sánchez's search to exploit the possible weak points of Feijóo's management in Galicia — "I appreciate you doing these control sessions for me It is clear that they already see themselves in the opposition”, joked the leader of the PP – to the attempts of the opposition leader to delve into the wound of the coalition – “Spain is tired of this government and of you”, he went so far as to say — and the auction of Sánchez, who had prepared an attack on Feijóo for the publication in EL PAÍS of the messages that the leadership of the PP sent to Pablo Casado a year ago shortly before betraying him and contributing to his dismissal.

One of those messages was written by Javier Maroto, who is still a spokesman in the Senate and was sitting next to Feijóo.

Sánchez read the entire message,

Feijóo was looking for the cracks within the PSOE with this

trans law

, which was opposed by some sectors of feminism, with Carmen Calvo as a great political reference, according to some popular leaders.

But the formula that the leader of the PP chose to do it was very harsh, in line with the inclement criticism of the most conservative media these days.

“President, do you agree that any of us decide to change our sex by a declaration of voluntary nature?

Do you agree with how your law is going to affect parity, spaces of intimacy, that minors can decide at 16 years of age without medical criteria to take hormones or undergo permanent surgery?

In breaking classic feminism?

It can be another error just like the one [of the law of]

only if it is yes.

Stop bothering good people now," Feijóo cried, with a phrase that caught his breath and tried to explain later in the corridors of the Senate, saying that he was referring to "doctors, teachers or jurists who oppose the

law trans


Sánchez then recalled that the PP always opposed all advances in rights, including the abortion law, which Feijóo now assumes after it is endorsed by the Constitutional Court.

"You said 'Butcher Zapatero' because of the abortion law, you appealed to the Constitutional Court," insisted the president.

Later, in another meeting with Javier Maroto, spokesperson in the Senate, the vice president, Yolanda Díaz, finished off this ideological clash that dominated the session.

“Do you think they are protecting women by agreeing with Vox?

Given all the advances, the PP has appealed all the rules to the Constitutional.

Feijóo has had to hold a cardinal conclave to tell us women if abortion is a right or not.

I tell you: it is a right and we are going to exercise it without paternalism.

Despite you, we are an example in the world in feminist politics.

The session was thus one of the most ideological that can be remembered in recent months, with Feijóo hooked on that furious criticism of the

trans law

and all the other projects of the Ministry of Equality, Irene Montero and abortion.

But not only because of these norms of rights.

Also for the economy.

Sánchez claimed the pension increases, the increase in the minimum wage and the government aid packages as a way of "defending the working middle class" against a PP that, in his opinion, is placed with "the elites" .

And for this reason, he affirmed, the PP resorts in Madrid and Andalusia, for example, the new tax on large fortunes set by the Executive, which prevents these autonomies from subsidizing 100%, and by such a practice they make the wealth tax disappear .

Feijóo exploded there and it was very hard again: “Do you think that with the checkbook you can rescue everything?

Do you think you will buy people?

He is leaving all this to debt, he is going to leave Spain with the largest public debt in history, ”he cried to loud applause from his group.

Are you going to continue to boast of raising the minimum wage?

The companies raise it, and you keep the taxes, ”he finished off.

Pedro Sánchez arrived at the Senate this Tuesday. Álvaro García

Sánchez seemed well disposed to this ideological debate, which is in line with what the PSOE wants to propose, that is, an electoral discussion between two models to manage the crisis.

“We have approved three Budgets, 200 laws, some as important as the labor or pension reform.

We have made 15 agreements with social agents.

Now we give 2,520 million euros in scholarships, while you in Galicia closed more than 100 public centers.

We have put 1,000 million euros for primary care, 700 million in high technology, and not like you who cut public health in Galicia or opened the first private hospital in Vigo.

We protect the middle class and yes, we make mistakes, as in [the law of]

the only yes is yes;

we strive to solve them.

You never fail, whenever you can, you benefit the elitist minority.

And yes, we have raised the SMI by 344 euros a month”.
