Response to Chimichurri (Reply #8)

9. And to think Macri has another 3½ years to go.

I myself had hoped that Macri would take a moderate course of prudent budget cuts and balanced, targeted tax cuts (those were his campaign promises, after all). Instead, he gave his backers massive tax cuts and much greater money laundering flexibility while walloping everyone else with much higher prices, fares, and rates - in effect, a huge tax increase.

Macri seems to forget that there's a huge country out there beyond Barrio Parque, the Sociedad Rural, and the financial district (as much as they like to whine). He chose to listen to the IMF and the Alsogaray/Martínez de Hoz types - and the consequences certainly didn't take long.

It hurts to hear about the good people of Moreno - who (correct me if I'm wrong) suffered a lot already during the neoliberal era between the late '70s and 2002. I wish them, and your loved ones in particular, all the best.
