.- Archbishop Fernando Saenz Lacalle of San Salvador, El Salvador, said this week the money that is generated after new fiscal reforms should benefit the entire population, without regard to political affiliation. The Archbishop emphasized that tax increases may be justified “but the money must be spent properly. This is a great responsibility. Above all tax revenues should not go to partisan expenses, but rather should be spent in benefit of the population, without regard to political distinctions.”
He called on all business leaders who have expressed their dissatisfaction with the reforms to consider that those who have more should contribute more.
Only when revenues are shared by all can the fiscal reforms be considered to have reached their goal, the Archbishop said.
