    This and many other “illustrious” people made substantial contributions towards bringing the Brazilian Economy from bad to worse!

    A meaningful Economic Recovery which will be felt by the masses; can only be possible AFTER:
    - The number of political parties and the number of politicians are drastically reduced.
    - Their fat salaries, incentives, fringe benefits and special legal considerations are curtailed
    - The politicians with corrupt & criminal records are banned from political activities
    - Ever since the independence, ALL the loot which the corrupt politicians have stashed is returned to improve the Quality of Life and reduce the Cost of Living of the masses
    - The criminals are severely punished.

    I am sorry to say that if you ban ALL politicians from office by them being corrupt or with criminal records then you would have no politicians being able to govern.

    The ONLY other option is to LEGALIZE corruption!

    “ The former president has been invited by the Marxist oriented Uruguayan unions' umbrella organization, PIT-CNT and by the ruling coalition Broad Front, under the banner “I defend democracy”.

    Now how stupid does that sound ? ”Marxist-oriented“ unions defending ”democracy” ?
    These lefties sure have a way of twisting the true meaning of democracy, into socialism, populism and power, for the sake of power alone (and corruption). If Uruguay insists on defending the likes of Dilma and Lula, it's about time they were kicked out of Mercosur as well, along with Venezuela. And last but not least, if the fat cow's purpose for travelling abroad is only to smear the image of Brazil, she should have her passport cancelled and should be placed under house-arrest. What a disgusting piece o' work she is.
