The representative of the youth organization in Totana has stated that "6 months of general elections and the Housing Minister has not proposed any measure to the thousands of citizens who can not pay your mortgage" and noted that the only initiatives being promoted in this county to youth is developing the City Hall.
Méndez Sánchez noted that since the governing PSOE in Spain are more expensive mortgages: "In 2004 the PSOE inherited half a mortgage payment of 478 euros and the Euribor 2.2%.
Currently, the mortgage payment is 889.57 euros and the Euribor in August was 5.323%. "
It has also emphasized that "Housing Plan 2005/2008 Zapatero is a fallacy because it has barely exceeded 50% of those households in the country" and emphasized that the regional government has encouraged the construction of 13,000 housing units over the past 5 years.
Also reported that "while the Socialist government is promoting this policy obstacles to young people who want access to their first home, most socialist municipalities of the Region do not give ground to the Autonomous Communities for construction of social housing."

"Your lack of planning and taking decisions on the run leads them to take 200 million euros of the budget of the Law Unit for the year 2008 and assign them with another 100 million to buy land, when they should be the Autonomous Communities those who held the money it costs us to keep the ministry of housing and not have to remove the Unit budget, something that has not been explained to them the thousands of people dependent on aid that have pending charge. "
On the other hand, the president of NNGG in Totana has stated that the Housing Minister boasted in the Senate back to the families of 400 euros, a total of 6,000 million euros, as acknowledged by the Minister of Economy, "have left the Government without discretion to help companies maintain employment and address the crisis. "
For Sanchez, "the most amazing about this disastrous housing policy is that youth have not been precisely those 400 euros mileuristas who are paying rent or have a mortgage.
And Zapatero calls it social policy, "he added.
